The Filson Historical Society's 2016 Campus Expansion

Filson Campus - renovated and expanded in 2016

 

The Filson Historical Society opened our new renovated and expanded campus in October, 2016. The new campus features updated and expanded reading rooms for researchers, two new, modern event halls equipped with audio-loop technology, new and expanded exhibit spaces, additional archival storage, and a new digital preservation lab. With designs by the award-winning De Leon & Primmer Architecture Workshop, the expanded campus features the striking new Owsley Brown II History Center as well as thoughtful interior renovations to the historic Ferguson Mansion and Carriage House. Come visit soon to see all that the new campus has to offer. Tours are available at 2:00 on weekdays or by request.

 

 The Filson thanks our Cornerstone Campaign donors who made this expansion possible.   Click here to see current list of donors.
