Throwing an Event? We've Got a Place for You.

The classically inspired Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History can accommodate in style and grandeur groups both small and large.

General Information

KHS can accommodate rental groups of up to 200 people (depending on the space that best suits your needs). Room amenities vary but include Wi-Fi, Ethernet, AV, teleconferencing capabilities, and dry-erase boards. KHS expects all events to harmonize with society’s character and mission. The Kentucky Historical Society reserves the right to decide whether an event is appropriate for our sites. Rentals are not available on Sundays.
