The Museums of Historic Hopkinsville-Christian County (MHHCC) is looking forward to returning to the newly-restored 1914 Post Office building that houses the Pennyroyal Area Museum. The move back is going to do two great things for Hopkinsville! It will showcase a beautiful historic building in our town, and it will provide our community with a state-of-the-art history museum.
The MHHCC has been fortunate to have volunteers to help the institution grow and move forward since its inception. This dedication is how museums prosper. As the staff makes preparations to move back into the Pennyroyal Area Museum in the coming months, we invite you to be a part of this exciting time by sharing your abilities and talents – become a museum volunteer! We will need help moving and unpacking, organizing and prepping for our Grand Opening, greeting and guiding guests in our renewed space, and leading and assisting with student groups. Volunteer with the Museum to feel great about your contribution to the cause of education and progress in your community.
