Have you ever wanted to know more about the history of your home, or of a particular building? “The History of Your House” is a panel discussion that will provide you with the opportunity to hear from three local information specialists on the different resources that organizations such as the Floyd County Historical Society, The Louisville Free Public Library and The Filson Historical Society have to help you research the history of your home and neighborhood. From architectural records to building histories, there are many resources out there that you may have known about (and some you didn’t know about) to aid you in learning more about your history.
