An Official Website of the Commonwealth of Kentucky
The Kentucky Historic Resources Survey has actively documented historic places across the Commonwealth for more than 50 years. Historic resources are surveyed through fieldwork and research, then this information is cataloged in the Kentucky Historic Resources Inventory (KHRI) database, which currently encompasses more than 100,000 surveyed buildings, sites, and other structures. The process is designed to answer the questions "What historic sites exist and where are they?"
If you are in search of reference material, a survey form or general guidance on acquiring background information for your local history project, please do not hesitate to reach out.
(In Kentucky, the archaeological survey database is maintained by the Office of State Archaeology.)
Historic resource site numbers are assigned by the Kentucky Heritage Council's Survey Coordinator. To obtain a site number or sequence for work you are doing, please email firstname.lastname@example.org the following information:
