The Filson News Magazine

The Filson News Magazine

The Filson news magazine is dedicated to telling the stories found in our collections in a personal way. Articles are written by staff members and Filson volunteers and strive to inform our members on the ways that they work every day to fulfill the organization’s mission to collect, preserve, and tell the significant stories of Kentucky and the Ohio Valley region’s history and culture.
