FRANKFORT, KY — Morning Pointe of Frankfort residents have seen a thing or two in their years. But many of the seniors were surprised to learn new facts about the Kentucky Capitol.

Located on Capital Avenue, the building is the fourth permanent building erected since Kentucky’s statehood, according to the commonwealth’s website.

The residents visited the building’s three floors housing the offices of the governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state and attorney general, various exhibits featuring famous Kentuckians, and the state’s Supreme Court courtroom and justice chambers.

As part of the life enrichment program, Morning Pointe residents enjoy outings to famous tourist attractions, taking in educational opportunities that are rich with local culture and community pride.

“It was an amazing trip learning so much about our history,” says Vanessa Damron, life enrichment program at Morning Pointe of Frankfort. “The residents were very surprised and amused about the many things they have yet to know about what made Kentucky what it is today.”
