Hear History Come Alive At The OMSH History Served Up - Bar-B-Q Style Dinner On Thursday, May 12!

The Owensboro Museum of Science and History is excited to announce a new fundraising series with an historical twist! History Served Up, Bar-B-Q Style! will lead off the series on Thursday, May 12 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. and is sponsored by Dahl and Groetzinger and Thacker Wealth and Retirement. 

Tickets are $30 per person and include a Bar-B-Q dinner of pulled pork, baked beans, cole slaw, cornbread, bread pudding and 3 drink tickets for beer or wine.  History will be “served up” by regional actor McCellus Mays through his portrayal of Harry Green, the first person in Owensboro to commercially sell barbeque. Musical entertainment will be provided by Charlene Blay and 2nd Edition and a temporary Owensboro Barbeque mini-exhibit will also be unveiled that evening. 

Patrons attending the event will automatically be entered into a drawing for a local history-themed “Explore Owensboro” quilt created in the Log Cabin quilt pattern by Pam Bivens. Anyone interested in purchasing additional opportunities to win the quilt can purchase a $5 ticket by calling or visiting the museum, or purchasing a ticket the evening of the event.  Other silent auction items that evening include an autographed photo of Coach John Calipari, several bourbon collections and a variety of themed gift baskets.

Patrons may order tickets by calling the Museum of Science and history at 270.687.2732. Future History Served Up events will be announced this summer.
