Pennyroyal Area Museum

If your community was home to a man who cured disease by going into a trance, it had been raided by hundreds of masked men set on mayhem, and if it had been visited by space aliens, you’d tell everyone you live in a very interesting place. That’s exactly what the people of Hopkinsville, Kentucky are telling us at their community museum. Join Nashville Public Television’s Tennessee Crossroads to find out more about the Pennyroyal Area Museum.
