December 7-8, 2018 - Polar Express in Sadieville Train Car

Listen to a dramatic reading of The Polar Express on the Sadieville Train Car. The Scott County Public Library invites all who truly believe to travel to the North Pole on the pages of this classic Christmas book on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 7 and 8. Enjoy this beautiful story and have your ticket punched by the train conductor; afterward, meet Santa and have cookies and cocoa. Tickets go on sale at the Scott County Public Library on Nov. 26.


December 7-9 & 14-19, 2018 - Ward Hall Candlelight Tours

Step inside Ward Hall, one of the nation’s finest Greek Revival-style mansions, trimmed for the holidays and illuminated with dozens of candles. Learn the history of this 12,000-square-foot villa, built for $50,000 (which was paid in gold) and completed in 1857. Here, one of Kentucky’s sauciest Southern belles, Sallie Ward, once held court, hosting lavish balls, amassing a fortune by marrying four millionaires and generally scandalizing polite society. Ward Hall Candlelight Tours take place Dec. 7-9 and 14-19.
