Frankfort: The Kentucky Governor’s Mansion gets a rare treat: On Saturday, at a gala celebrating its centennial, the mansion in Frankfort will get a commemorative Maker’s Mark bourbon bottle, with the portraits of eight living Kentucky governors on the label.
At the gala, 100 hand-signed bottles will be auctioned to benefit the upkeep of the mansion.
Governors on the bottle are: Wendell H. Ford, 1971-74; Julian M. Carroll, 1974-79; John
