Thanks to the participation of dozens of Louisville residents and a talented and dedicated team of oral history program volunteers, the Louisville Historical Museum has a rich collection of filmed interviews documenting Louisville's unique history. The Museum has captured people's memories and stories about Louisville in over 170 hours of interviews conducted since 2009.

Oral history interviews are occasionally shown on Louisville's Channel 8. If you have questions or would like to participate in the Museum's oral history program as a narrator or volunteer, please contact the Museum Coordinator:
