Maintaining the historical fabric of Kentucky's Main Street communities


Historic Preservation is more than just protecting our cultural history.  It is the sustainability of resources in our community for the betterment of our environment, the conservation of our local heritage and the acknowledgement of fiscal responsibility

Kentucky Heritage Council – An agency of the Kentucky Tourism, Arts, and Heritage Cabinet, the Kentucky Heritage Council is the State Historic Preservation Office, responsible for the identification, protection, and preservation of prehistoric resources and historic buildings, sites, and cultural resources throughout the Commonwealth.

A successful downtown revitalization effort must incorporate the historic structures and strategies to return them to economically viable uses while respecting their historic character.
