The Bluegrass Heritage Museum in Winchester, Kentucky is a local museum that contains different exhibits including Eskippakithiki Indians to Daniel Boone memorabilia to a collection of photographs, quilts and telephones.

The Bluegrass Heritage Museum operates from Monday through Saturday and opens at 12:00 and closes at 4:00pm. The museum?s goal is to collect, preserve and exhibits objects that have become part of the rich history of Kentucky?s Winchester, Clark County which has also been known as the Bluegrass.

The exhibits that visitors can gaze at during their visit in the museum include the Agriculture Room in the first floor which include the Winchester Fire Department, artifacts from Lower Howard?s Creek and even old photographs by A.J. Earp. Since the building where the museum has been housed was once a hospital, museum curators started an exhibit showing different photos and memorabilia related to the building?s past.

The museum also includes the quilt collection in one of the rooms in the first floor. These quilts were collected from 1842 all the way to the early 1900s. The actual quilt display began in the early parts of the 1900s which prominently displayed the wedding dress worn by a Bush descendant at Fort Boonesborough in 1790. Guests can also check the Military History gallery which pays tribute to the Clark County soldiers who served America from the American Revolution all the way to the Second World War. The museum?s military gallery also features a small area that honors the memory of Harold G. Epperson who has received the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Guests can also look at the telephone history gallery that showcases different older telephone models including a switchboard and a full size phone booth.
