Ludlow: How Transportation Transformed a City
NKY History Hour - Wednesday, July 28, 6:30 p.m.
The city of Ludlow has undergone many changes in its 200-year history. One common theme during all those years has been transportation.
In the next virtual NKY History Hour on July 28, Dave Schroeder, executive director of the Kenton County Public Library, will discuss how transportation has played a major role in the development and current reinvention of Ludlow, from the Ohio River to horse-drawn carriages, streetcars, automobiles, buses and back to the river.
The virtual presentation will take place via Zoom at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, July 28. To register and participate in the free event, CLICK HERE.
Information on how to connect to the session will be sent after registration. The event will also be streamed live on BCM's Facebook page.
