Historic Resources Survey & Inventory

​​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?" Nearly all of our survey files have been digitized and can be conveniently emailed at no charge upon request. In Kentucky, the archaeological survey database is maintained by the Office of State Archaeology. 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.​​​
