Members of the Clay County Historical Society:

Due to recent unforeseen circumstances, we have found it necessary to postpone our Spring History Tours. This is not a cancellation! Our guides and crew have been preparing for this tour of Burning Springs and Sextons Creek for some time and are excited to share the trip with you. Our apologies for the temporary delay.

We'll keep you posted by email and through Facebook of our dates as soon as they become available.

Thank you for supporting us and our efforts to share Clay County’s rich history!

"The Clay We Were - A Visual Journey" published by the Clay County Historical Society received the 2017 "Book of the Year" in the local history category by the publisher, Acclaim Press and also received a Kentucky History Award from the Kentucky Historical Society. What an honor it was being recognized twice for our popular book and the outstanding achievements we at the Society strive for.
