Founded in 1910, HHS has been documenting area history for well over a century. We are one of the oldest historical societies in Kentucky.
Our object is to "collect and perpetuate facts of historic interest relative to Mercer County; to awaken an interest in the study of the history of this County and of the entire state; to collect and preserve relics and documents of interest"...
We operate with an amazing all volunteer team who share a passion for history. These include volunteers who serve on the board, conduct research and maintenance in the library, assist with committees in events, grounds, finance, building maintenance, food & drink, and much more.
We also remember the hundreds of volunteers and supporters who came before in our long 110 year history, without whom we would not be here today.
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 welcome you to join us!
