“Quote from Museum review.”
The Louisville Historical Commission is an advisory board tasked with advising City Council on the development and use of the Louisville Historical Museum, promoting public awareness of the history of Louisville and its surrounding area, and establishing and monitoring criteria for the collection, preservation, and display of historical artifacts, documents, and structures.
In 2014 the Commission decided that fundraising activities should be managed by a new Foundation instead of the Commission. The purpose of the Foundation would be to support and engender community support for the preservation of the history of the City of Louisville, Colorado, and the City ofLouisville’s historical museum and campus.
Today, the Louisville History Foundation serves as the fundraising organization supporting the The Louisville Historical Museum.
