About Us

The Cynthiana-Harrison County Trust was incorporated in 1993. It was established to help preserve the history of the Cynthiana-Harrison County Community.  In doing so it set a plan in motion to create a Museum of artifacts that would tell the story of the City of Cynthiana and the Harrison County Community. Over nearly a quarter century, the Cynthiana-Harrison County Museum has become a place where tangible history comes alive through the more than 3000 artifacts on display.


The Museum, open on Friday and Saturdays from 10am-4pm, offers self guided tours, as well as staff guided tours. Admission is free but donations to the museum are encouraged. Resources abound for those interested in genealogy, Civil War History as it pertains to the Battles fought in Cynthiana KY, and the way of life in small town America. Special Events sponsored by the museum occur throughout the year including a speakers series, The Great Museum Treasure Hunt - a summer artifacts treasure hunt for school age children, and our own version of “Antique Road Show”. The Museum also shows off  its antique car collections every August during the Cynthiana Rod Run. The museum operates on donations and income from its membership.

Opportunities to get involved as a ‘volunteer’ at the museum are numerous. The Cynthiana-Harrison County Trust Inc. oversees the museum and welcomes visitors from up the street and around the world.
