Currently, there are no Exhibits open at this time. Check back for information on upcoming events.
Our next exhibit will be at September 20 – 21st, 2014, and will be at “Riverside – The Farnsley-Moremen Landing”. I will be there for the three day event answering any questions that you may have about the history of Camp Zachary Taylor. I will be displaying as many photographs and articles that I can fit into the limited space.
On January 11, 2014, we are opening our newest exhibit on “Louisville and The Great War”. As you may know, 2014 is the centennial of the start of World War 1. We will be covering many topics and events that occurred in Louisville and at Camp Zachary Taylor during the Great War. The exhibit will be at the Conrad Caldwell House Museum and admission to the exhibit is included in the ticket price for the house tour. What a deal!
Extra events planned during the exhibits run will be a Lecture Series covering various subjects, screenings of Movies about the war and other subjects related to the era, and some other surprises!
So mark your calendar for those winter months when you can’t find anything to do, and come see what changed Louisville One Hundred years ago, into the city it is today.

Upcoming Exhibit – January 2014
Our next exhibit is in the planning stages, and is scheduled to open in January 2014. It will be hosted by the Conrad/Caldwell House Museum in Old Louisville.
The Museum is located at 1402 St. James Court, at the corner of St. James and Magnolia. The exhibit will feature items from our collection, such as authentic uniforms, artifacts, photographs and souvenirs from Camp Zachary Taylor.
The following images are examples of what may be in the exhibit. Although it will cover one entire floor of this 19th Century Mansion, we still have a limited amount of space.
