Due to campus expansion, the Ferguson Mansion is not open for tours. Research hours remain 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday.

We are Kentucky’s oldest privately supported historical society, founded in 1884.  We have been collecting and preserving Kentucky and the Ohio Valley region’s significant stories for over 130 years.

You can use our site to search for information on many of our collections, or visit to access our extensive archives and library holdings.
