Duncan Hines was born in Bowling Green in 1880. An exhibit titled Recommended by Duncan Hines at the Kentucky Museum allows you to learn about the real man. We all remember the cake mix, but did you know that Duncan Hines was one of the first travel reviewers? Mr. Hines traveled across the U.S. frequently, and kept a journal compiling a list of best restaurants, hotels and motels. After giving the list to friends for Christmas, he was encouraged to publish his recommendations. The guidebooks became very popular, especially with the new American pastime — road tripping! Other exhibits include A Star in Each Flag which examines the Civil War, and Faces and Places, a rich collection of historic textiles, quilts, and embroidered pillows. There is fee to enter, free for current WKU students.
