For a while during Covid there were no public lectures unless you counted the online lectures. Fortunately as we are getting back to normal guest lecturers are now able to present their lectures at the Filson Historical Society. Previously I attended a lecture on J. Edgar Hoover and one on the history of the Vanderbilts and their fall from prominence. Tonight’s lecture was on the surrender at Appomattox and the lingering effects of the Lost Cause and the problems it caused going forward. I missed going to the Filson and have enjoyed the lectures presented so far.

This was a fascinating story of Henrietta Wood a woman who was born into slavery in Kentucky, given her freedom in Cincinnati in 1848, then kidnapped in 1853 and sold back into slavery until after the Civil War. She actually sued her kidnapper and won. Stories such as this and more are a large part of what the Filson Historical Society does well. It doesn’t hurt that the a Filson is housed in the Ferguson Mansion in the popular Old Louisville Neighborhood.

After a year and a half absence we have rejoined The Filson Historical Society just in time for Sandra Day O’Connor lecture. It was very informative and we were able to learn a bit more about her life and career as a Supreme Court Judge. Of course we came away with a better appreciation for her work and career. We also have signed up for future lectures that are of interest. Of course you don’t have to be a member to attend the lectures but do remember that most lectures are free to members. Many of the lectures/events take place in the Ferguson Mansion in Old Louisville which is not only lovely but historic. And yes, the Filson does have parking which is a bonus in Old Louisville.

My purpose in visiting was to explore the genealogy records. The facility was beautiful and beautifully maintained. The staff is very professional and knowledgeable. The research rooms are well lighted and beautiful.

We recently gave ourselves a membership to the Filson for Christmas, mainly for the frequent lectures. Having attended three lectures, which we greatly enjoyed, I wanted a tour of the facility yesterday. First I did a self-tour of the two current displays, one about the past Shanty Boat culture on the Ohio River, the other “Connect the Dots” based on Family genealogy. At 2:00pm, I met a Filson volunteer (Chip Arbegust), who took us throughout the facility. The tour was punctuated with facts, pictures, humor, and discussion. After the tour I completed a quick hour of successful family research! Located in Old Louisville, the Filson has limited free parking. Enjoy!

The Filson Historical Society's historic Ferguson Mansion contains much historic material related to Kentucky. And they have a relatively new addition as well.

In addition, the Filson Historical Society hosts a variety of speakers, seminars, etc.

A free tour of much of their facility is conducted at 2 p.m. Monday-Friday. A reservation is not needed. Just show up for it.

I was the only person present for the 2 p.m. tour on Tuesday, May 22nd, and felt privileged to receive a one-on-one tour conducted by Heather. She showed me much of the historic mansion, which contains a few original and several other period pieces. The tour also enabled me to see some of the Society's artwork collection and their research library, as well as their addition.

Heather patiently answered my numerous questions. The tour concluded with a visit to two galleries. What is displayed in the galleries changes periodically. During my visit, one of the galleries featured a large (and interesting) collection of photographs taken by a U.S. World War I soldier in Europe.

I did not time the tour. But, I'm guessing the tour took about an hour.

A key asset of the Filson Historical Society is its research library. Even nonmembers can conduct research there. But a daily fee of $10 for nonmembers applies. I hope to return for a visit sometime to conduct some research.

I encourage persons in the Louisville area who are interested in Kentucky history, seminars, lectures, etc., to consider joining. Though the Society is a private organization, my understanding is that membership is open to everyone who pays the dues.

And I urge persons in the Louisville area to seek to take the free tour sometime at 2 p.m. Monday-Friday.

This beautiful facility is stunning to look at, and provides a well curated collection centered around the WWI era. There is full research library upstairs which is quite impressive

The Filson just recently finished a total remodel of their facilities, and now they have an amazing set of auditoriums for conferences, and an expanded on site collections. Really beautiful stuff in its own right.

This is a must for visit if you just driving through or a family or historic researcher. The collections is one of the best in the nation relating Kentucky history. There is original art hanging on the walls of the home. excellent seminars and programs are given also.
