The Laurel County History Museum and Genealogy Center, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization housed in a renovated 8,000 square foot barn, next to a renovated barn-turned-event-facility at Heritage Hills Park at the end of Falls Street in London, Kentucky, next door to the Heritage Hills Banquet Hall. MAP
The Center is dedicated to historic preservation and history education of Laurel County through research, education and exhibits; promoting and inspiring our youth to continue this project long after those of us who have started it are gone.
The Center strives to make sure that Laurel County and the rest of the world remembers our history from the time before the Wilderness Road was established through today. We want to honor the people who fought in our wars, who settled the area, who became famous, and those who have made a difference in the area simply by living here. We hope that you will help us do this.
The Center is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, so donations are tax deductible. The Center has been created, managed, and staffed by volunteers. London-Laurel Tourism has been–and still is–our staunchest supporter, but there is always room for more support. You can volunteer, contribute monetarily, donate or loan artifacts, provide documentation, and attend events. This is YOUR history as well as ours. Help us preserve it for future generations.
