Raven Run Nature Sanctuary contains the remnants of several 19th century dwellings and work sites that have been excavated by professional archaeologists. Our history program allows visitors to examine the tools, coins and other objects found during these digs in our nature center before being led on a hike to explore the actual historical sites. Farmsteads, graveyards and other evidence of land use over the last 200 years are preserved in our park for visitors to gain a look into Kentucky’s past. Recent information on Native American habitation of this area is also presented. Please call ahead to register for this program.
