Preservation Kentucky’sTour120is an exciting new statewide heritage tourism program designed to raise awareness of the importance of historic preservation and heritage tourism to Kentucky’s communities. The year-long program launched the weekend of May 18 during National Historic Preservation Month and continues throughout the year, with tours of historic buildings on the same days throughout the state to make a large impact on the public and provide a cohesive branding and promotional opportunity for the sites that participate. The goals are to showcase Kentucky’s diverse historic architecture, increase visitors to historic sites, spark interest in all age groups and get folks out into their own and neighboring communities to explore the built environment that tells our Kentucky story. 

 

All proceeds from the event will benefit preservation in Boyle County.  For more information on this event and purchasing tickets contact; jamee@historicdanvilleky.com or visit:
