Trip Planner: USA / Kentucky / Louisville / Sons of the American Revolution Genealogical Research Library
Historical illiteracy deprives students at every level from a basic knowledge and appreciation of our nation’s founding principles. The National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution responded by creating the Center for Advancing America’s Heritage to secure the blessings of liberty for future generations and ensure that our children learn the inestimable blessings of being an American. The Center for Advancing America’s Heritage is headquartered in the historic Fulton-Conway Building in the heart of Downtown Louisville’s museum district. The Center includes the SAR Genealogical Research Library that was completed in 2011.Take a look at our Louisville online route planner to schedule your visit to Sons of the American Revolution Genealogical Research Library and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
