Welcome, Visitors!
If you enjoy Kentucky history, genealogy, oral histories, historical sites and attractions, folktales, old photos, and recipes, you will enjoy The Kentucky Explorer magazine.

While paid subscribers to the hardcopy edition of our magazine receive complete offerings each month, Web visitors have access to selected features as a sampling of our product. We invite you to view these samples. If you like what you see, but you're not a current subscriber, please give consideration to joining thousands of others who receive our magazine each month.

The online edition of The Explorer is generally updated around the third week of each month.

In addition to the selected articles, photographs, and related links on this Web site, you'll also find instructions on how to subscribe and order back issues of our hardcopy magazine; post a question, query, or remark; visit our message board; and how to submit articles and photographs of your own.


As you can see, The Kentucky Explorer covers a wide range of topics and many things of interest to those who like Kentucky history and genealogy. Each year over 1,100 pages and over 1,000 illustrations are featured in The Explorer!
