Louisville Historical Museum

Louisville Historical Museum

The main building is historically known as the Jacoe Store and features a variety of artifacts and historic photographs that reflect the settlement and industry of Louisville, including coal mining and equipment. The Jacoe Store was placed on the National Register of Historic Places because of its architecture and association with commercial development in Louisville. The smaller building, known as the Tomeo House, is interpreted as a coal miner’s house, including a kitchen, bedroom and sitting room.

We hope you enjoy our work.
