Many striking architectural features and opulent decorative finishes such as Honduran mahogany, hand carved Circassian walnut furniture, Italian marble with 36 columns Vermont granite featured in the rotunda.

 Floral Clock– One of KY’s most beloved attractions with an intriguing past. Then Governor Bert Combs took flak from opponents — in particular A.B. “Happy” Chandler during the 1963 gubernatorial campaign — for the floral clock’s construction.  “Well, they don’t say it’s half past 2 in Frankfort anymore,” “They say it’s two petunias past the jimson weed.” 

Rebecca Ruth Candies-We sample the creation of two substitute school teachers who decide they were not exactly cut out for education. Ms. Booe excelled at blending bourbon and candy to create Kentucky’s famous candy!
