The Filson Historical Society's mission is to collect, preserve, and tell the significant stories of Kentucky and the Ohio Valley history and culture. Since 1884, The Filson has been entrusted with archiving and sharing Ohio Valley history. The Filson uses its collections to help the community understand historical significance and context through educational programming about the events, people, and cultural shifts that shaped the region. Programs range from lectures with renowned historians to staff-led presentations based on Filson collections and artifacts. The Filson's library and archives are open to the public and contain correspondence, diaries, business and organizational records, photographs, rare publications, and genealogical material not found anywhere else.

Over its long history, The Filson has become a cornerstone in Louisville's cultural community and a trusted educational resource with an increasing demand for its services. From its newly expanded campus, The Filson is seeking to increase its community visibility and accessibility. Most importantly, it is reaching out into communities that have historically been under-represented at The Filson in order to bring its mission to a larger and more diverse audience.
