We Need You!

Harrodsburg Historical Society relies on financial support from local residents as well as supporters throughout the country who make up our historical community. Through continued donations and annual dues we are able to continue to preserve the stories, artifacts, and documents of history. We are a 501c3 Non-profit organization, so your donation is tax deductible and deeply appreciated.

We also depend on our wonderful volunteers locally to help us continue our work. We welcome you to join us!
