Directions

561 Blankenbaker Lane, Louisville, KY 40207
 
From I-65
Take I-71 North. Continue on I-71, passing the I-64 split, and exit at Zorn Avenue. Turn left onto Zorn, taking care as you cross the median. Make a right turn onto River road at the light (Chevron Station on the corner). Turn right onto Blankenbaker Lane, approximately 6 miles from downtown Louisville, at the traffic light. You will proceed gradually uphill as you travel away from the river, and will find the entrance to the Locust Grove parking lot on your left, immediately past Twin Hill (on the right).  
From Downtown Louisville
Take either the I-71 to Zorn Avenue route described above, or if you are already close to the riverfront, just take River Road all the way out to Blankenbaker Lane.  
From points along the Watterson Expressway (I-264)
Take the Watterson eastward to the Brownsboro Road (U. S. 42) exit. At the end of the ramp, turn left and proceed to the third traffic light. Turn right onto Blankenbaker Lane. Locust Grove will come into view within about 1-1/2 miles, just as you crest a small ridge. Make a right turn into the parking lot, just after passing the historic house.

Living Room Lecture Series | Dan Gediman: The Reckoning
Wednesday, 1:00pm - 3:00pm

Dan Gediman: The Reckoning
Dan Gediman is the producer of the public radio and podcast series The Reckoning, which traces the history and lasting impact of slavery in America by looking at how the institution unfolded in Kentucky. The state remained in the Union during the Civil War, but many white Kentuckians fought to hang onto slavery and the wealth the enslaved provided. In the years that followed, former Unionists and Confederates banded together to violently deny black citizens a seat at the table. In the series, we meet members of two families, one white and one black, whose lives were intertwined through slavery. These families reflect how slavery touched nearly every person, place, and institution in America, and how the country still needs to reconcile this painful past with the impact slavery has had on the present-day health, wealth, and safety of African Americans. Gediman will talk about the series, the research that went into it, and his ongoing efforts to change the way history, especially as it relates to slavery, is taught in Kentucky’s schools. This lecture will take place over Zoom. Reservations required and may be made here:https://bit.ly/GedimanLectureLG
A link will be emailed after your reservation is processed. Admission is free with thanks to our generous sponsor, PNC Bank.
