The Bullitt County History Museum

About the Museum

The purpose of the Bullitt County History Museum is to be a repository of historical artifacts, historical information, and genealogical resources related to Bullitt County and surrounding communities; to collect, present, and interpret the history of Bullitt County and its people; and to display that history in an interesting, helpful, and educational way, widely accessible to the general public.

The Museum is housed in the county courthouse, and is staffed by volunteer members of the Bullitt County Genealogical Society. We feature a free research room with computers to access the internet as well as our growing collection of local historical and genealogical resources.

Our two display rooms feature exhibits related to our county's heritage, and there are additional fascinating and fun displays throughout the courthouse hallways on both floors for your viewing pleasure. Our volunteer staff members work on many research and documentation projects, and are always ready to assist our guests.

Convenient handicap access is available from the east [rear] entrance of the Courthouse, near the Old Stone Jail. Admission and parking are free, so come visit with us!
