Founded in 1993, the BCHS encourages the preservation of historical resources in Bracken County and the surrounding areas. The BCHS has its offices and museum in the old Bracken County jail located in Brooksville, adjacent to the Bracken County Court House. Here, records can be found dating back to the late 1700's. Genealogical research is at your finger tips because of the work and effort put in by the many members of the historical society. Numerous publications are available from the society including: Bracken County Marriages and Bonds, African-American Records of Bracken County, Bracken County Cemeteries and Burial Sites and many others.
