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.

The SAR Genealogical Research Library maintains one of the world’s premier collections on the American Revolution. It features over 60,000 books, periodicals, journals, microfilm and microfiche on the American Revolution that tell the stories of sacrifice and courage of the patriots who won America’s independence. The library also features an outstanding collection of personal papers of George Washington, the Marquis de Lafayette, and a unique collection of the papers of George Rogers Clark, a Patriot of the Revolutionary War who founded the City of Louisville.
