On January 30, 1900, William Goebel was walking to the Old State Capitol in Frankfurt, Kentucky, to meet with the legislature regarding the results of a contested gubernatorial election. As he reached the stairs to the building, a shot rang out. The story of the only sitting governor in United States’ history to be assassinated is history that deserves to be remembered.

The Kentucky Historical Society has several artifacts related to Governor Goebel on display. Be sure to visit the Kentucky History Center and Museums in Frankfort.
