This will be the first year that the Bardstown Civil War Museum and its corresponding venues will be operating without the help of Rita Herrmann.
Herrmann, the long-time curator and co-founder of the museum, passed away last year at the age of 86.
“Rita was a character,” said current manager Kenny Johnson. “She ran this place seven days a week, and she was in her 80s.”
Johnson said Herrmann had seen the museum come to life years ago, piece-by-piece.
