Town wins award for phone tour

GLASGOW — Horse Cave’s effort to become a 24-hour tourist attraction by developing a cell phone tour featuring various points of interest  — both above and below ground — has paid off.

Officials with the Horse Cave Cultural District were informed this week the “Horse Cave Stories: Cell Phone Tour and Website” has won an education award as part of the 2012 Kentucky History Awards.

Mayor Randall Curry received an e-mail Wednesday about the award.

“We’re proud to be able to get our city recognized for some of the hard work that several people have been doing,” Curry said. “This is just some of the fruits of our labors.”

The tour features recordings of local townspeople sharing information about the points of interest.

“We’ve been working on it for two or three years,” he said.

Interpretive signs were placed at all 20 points of interest along the tour. There is also a website, www.horsecavestories.com, with other stories about Horse Cave, as well as the information included in the recordings and on the interpretive signs.

Dave Foster, director of the American Cave Museum and a member of the Horse Cave Cultural District’s board of directors, learned about the award Thursday morning.
