The Filson is conducting gallery tours in conjunction with the publication of Lessons in Likeness: Portrait Painters in Kentucky and the Ohio River Valley, 1802-1920. These guided tours are designed to provide unique insights into portraits in The Filson’s collection, spanning all three floors of the Ferguson Mansion.  

Lessons in Likeness features an extensive selection of The Filson’s paintings, in addition to biographical notes on each artist and a cultural chronology. The result is a vivid portrayal of regional portraiture.

These tours will be conducted at The Filson Historical Society and are limited in capacity, so reservations are necessary. Call The Filson for your reservation at (502) 635-5083.

Since its founding in 1884, The Filson Historical Society has preserved the region’s collective memory, not only of Kentucky but also of the Ohio Valley and the Upper South. The Filson continues to collect and tell the significant stories of the region. An independent historical society, The Filson serves the public through its extensive research collections and numerous educational opportunities. The Filson is headquartered in the Ferguson Mansion in Old Louisville and houses a library, a museum and a special collections department.
