KY Governor’s Mansion Turns 100
The Kentucky governor's mansion has turned 100 years old, and Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky has been named the title sponsor for a celebration marking the centennial.
The anniversary is being marked with a yearlong celebration of events honoring the mansion's architectural, social and political history.
Wil James, president of the Toyota-Kentucky plant, says the automaker is well aware of the mansion's important history.
He says the mansion was a key venue for discussions that led to Toyota's decision to locate its auto plant in Georgetown.
Events will include a civil rights exhibit and public mansion tour honoring Martin Luther King Jr.'s visit to Frankfort on March 5, 1964.
