​Homes and neighborhoods, farms, barns, stone fences, distilleries, factories, stores, churches, schools, taverns, warehouses, train depots, cemeteries, battlefields, and Main Streets—they all tell the story of our shared history.

These historic places are important for keeping the heritage of our state alive.   

The Site Identification program of the Kentucky Heritage Council manages historic property survey, evaluation, nomination and planning. This section maintains an inventory of historic properties across the state, which serves as the foundation for other functions and programs of the agency.
