Those Places Thursday - Old Capitol Building

This building served as the Kentucky Capitol from 1830 to 1910.


The only state governor in the U. S. to be assassinated was shot right in front of this building.

See the plaque in the lower left-center?

Here it is up close. 
"WILLIAM GOEBEL FELL HERE JAN. 30th, 1900"

I'm not related to Goebel but do have a family connection to this.

I'll tell you about it in a few days.

It involves a trial.
