The Woodford County Historical Society now offers a service which will allow you to leave a permanent mark on Woodford County and support our Mission:
"Preserving the past
for future generations".
Your thoughtful donation will leave a lasting physical memorial for yourself or someone you wish to honor.
The first 384 engraved bricks are being placed at the base of the flagpole located at the southeast corner of our property at 121 Rose Hill in Versailles. Additional engraved bricks will pave the walkways to the three public entrances of the building.
An engraved brick may be the perfect way to "leave your mark" on Woodford County and make a thoughtful gift. A Certificate of Ownership for each brick will be mailed to you or to the person you designate.
The minimum donation for each engraved brick is $100.
Each brick measures 4" X 8" X 2½" and is an attractive antique red color that closely matches our brick building.
We are Open!
While we are finishing our renovations, the Museum will be open Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 10am-4pm!
