Our volunteers:

  • Enhance the visitor experience at all KHS locations

Volunteers Build Our Community

At the Kentucky Historical Society (KHS), we work together as a community to accomplish our mission.

Volunteers work behind the scenes in the library, archives, and collections. In many ways, it’s thanks to these dedicated, meticulous souls that we can make these collections available to you.

Our volunteers on the front lines also interact with visitors and represent KHS to people from across the world. Knowledgeable Old State Capitol docents give tours and make our visitors feel welcome. Museum engagement specialists engage with school groups and encourage children to learn about Kentucky history. Our amazing teen volunteers help with various events and summer camps.

It is with the help of our volunteers that we accomplish so much.
