  ABOUT THE MUSEUM
   
The Louisville Historical Museum complex is composed of four buildings that were constructed between 1904 and 1908. Presently, only two of the buildings are open to the public. The main building, historically known as the Jacoe Store, features a variety of artifacts and historic photographs that reflect the settlement and industry of Louisville including coal mining and related equipment. photo, Museum main building

This building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places because of its architecture and association with commercial development in Louisville. 

 

The smaller building, known as the Tomeo House, is interpreted as a coal miner’s house, including a kitchen, bedroom, and sitting room. This building is also listed on the Louisville Register of Historic Places.
 
The »Louisville Historical Commission is appointed by the City Council to act as the Museum's advisory board.

  OUR MISSION
    The mission of the Louisville Historical Museum—a facility owned and operated by the City of Louisville—is to promote, collect, preserve, and interpret the diverse history of Louisville from the time of settlement until present day, with a special emphasis on the coal mining period, 1877-1955. The museum is dedicated to protecting artifacts and documents of historical value and educating children and adults about the past.
