  • Since our founding in 1884, The Filson Historical Society's mission has been to collect, preserve, and tell the significant stories of Kentucky and Ohio Valley history and culture. The Filson performs its mission by collecting and securing historical and cultural documents, books, objects, and art, exhibiting and interpreting our collections for the public, supporting research and study, and presenting educational programs and events.
