The Alhambra opened on May 28, 1928 for both live stage shows and silent movies. Admission was seventy-five cents. The opening movie was John Barrymore in "Don Juan" with additional comedies, newsreels, and a live orchestra. Advertisements called it "The Theatre Beautiful." On September 11, 1929 the first sound movie shown at the Alhambra was "His Captive Woman." The sound process was called Vitaphone Talking Movies. The Pennyroyal Arts Council began leasing the building from the county in the fall of 1983 to be used as a community performing arts center. An annual Live at the Alhambra Series offers a variety of shows and musical performances.

workwww.edgarcayce.travel
About
Considered by many to be the greatest psychic of the 20th Century, Edgar Cayce was born on March 18, 1877 in Hopkinsville and died on January 3, 1945 in Virginia Beach, Virginia. He is buried in Riverside Cemetery, Hopkinsville. From 1901, when he was 24, until his death he gave over 14,000 'readings', many of which were transcribed by a stenographer and are available for research. A "reading" was a discourse given by Mr. Cayce while he was lying down with his eyes closed and in an altered state of consciousness. Delivered in his own normal voice with only a few exceptions, the discourses he gave were recorded stenographically and later typed. They cover such a wide array of subject matter that they are indexed under more than 10,000 major subject headings, with more than 225,000 index cards. Most of the readings were given for individuals and, therefore, deal with specific personal questions concerning various aspects of physical, mental, spiritual, vocational and interpersonal life. Some of these readings, however, were complete discourses on topics such as meditation, Bible interpretation, and world affairs. It was not necessary for the person obtaining the reading to be present: Mr. Cayce was able to describe individuals and diagnose their physical condition with surprising accuracy, even though they might have been hundreds of miles away. From these readings, thousands of people reported being helped, often in ways which transformed their lives. Studied as a whole, the readings provide specific procedures which many consider helpful in treating many illnesses. And now, decades after Mr. Cayce's death, his readings continue to inspire, educate and amaze those who research them.

Jefferson Davis Historic Monument

workparks.ky.gov/findparks/histparks/jd/
About
In 1907 at a reunion of the Orphan’s Brigade of the Confederate Army, General Simon Bolivar Buckner, a famous Confederate general from Kentucky, proposed that a monument be built to honor Jefferson Davis at the site of his birthplace. Contractor C. G. Gregg of Louisville submitted a bid of $75,000 to design and build the monument. In 1917, construction of the world’s tallest concrete obelisk began. Steam was the principle source of power, and monument workers used steam engines to power their equipment, including steam-powered drills. A quarry was dug on the south end of the 19-acre park site and the stone crushed for use in mixing cement. The monument had reached a height of 175 feet by the fall of 1918, when construction was halted due to rationing of building materials during World War 1. Construction resumed in January 1922 and was completed in 1924 at an increased cost of $200,000. The 351 foot obelisk rests on a foundation of solid Kentucky limestone, and contains walls seven feet thick at the base, tapering to two feet thick where the point inclines. The monument features an elevator to an observation room high atop the structure for a panoramic view of the countryside. The Monument has undergone major renovation and reopened to visitors in May 2004. Hours of Operation: Gift Shop is open May 1-Oct 31, 9:00a.m.-5:00p.m.

About

During its operating years, the Hopkinsville depot was a popular layover spot for those traveling by train. It was the only Louisville & Nashville station between Evansville, Indiana and Nashville, Tennessee where it was legal to drink alcohol. Hopkinsville got the nickname "Hop town" due to train passengers asking the conductors when they would arrive at Hopkinsville, so they could "hop off and get a drink." The Hopkinsville L & N Railroad Depot was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on August 1, 1975. It is now used by the Pennyroyal Arts Council.

About
One of the oldest and most unique homes in Hopkinsville, Lone Oak opened in June 2008 as the city's first house museum. Built in 1834-35, Lone Oak architecture represents the transition between the Federal and Greek Revival period, with evident elements of both styles. Its original owner, Joseph B. Crockett later became Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court. It is one of only two documented examples of a "Temple Form" house in Hopkinsville that was later altered with the addition of two upstairs front rooms in the 1880's. Having changed hands many times, and even serving as several restaurants beginning in the late 1970's, Lone Oak was purchased by its present owner in 2006 and restored.

workpennyroyal.museum@gmail.com
About
The Woody Winfree Fire-Transportation Museum opened in February 2008. Born from an idea that was initially voiced some 40 years earlier, the Museum showcases the prized collection of fire and transportation memorabilia from Mr. Woody Winfree. Once Hopkinsville's downtown fire station, the building was constructed in 1905 and included a town clock whose tower stretched 85'. The structure was completely lost to fire in 1924 but was re-built. After changing hands to a local businessman and a college, the building finally came back into city ownership in the late 1990's. County Historian William Turner and other citizens soon applied for a grant to restore the building for purposes of housing a museum. Nearly ten years later, their long-awaited dream because reality. The Museum includes fire trucks, automobiles, wagons, buggies, a sleigh, benchs from Hopkinsville's railroad station, historic photos from the fire department and a large collection of Christian County license plates. One of the Museum's most intriguing artifacts is the entire collection of recorded fire calls through the time written records were kept. The $5 admission covers both the Woody Winfree Fire-Transportation Museum and the Pennyroyal Area Museum.
