Welcome to The Ohio County Historical Society! We are a non profit organization dedicated collecting and preserving authentic information, facts, and relics connected with the history of Ohio County, Kentucky. We reorganized our Society in 1971, and opened the museum in 1973. We soon outgrew that building and we moved into the Thomas House in 1975. All kinds of items are on display and one of our knowledgeable volunteers would love show you around. In addition to the Thomas House, we have an authentic L&N caboose, a one room school, one room store, a log cabin, and a building filled with period tools. We also have a Veteran’s Museum with exhibits about our local men and women who have served in the military. If you have any comments, stories, or questions about local history or genealogy, please leave a comment below.
