Kentucky Heritage Land Conservation Fund receives national award for battlefield preservation efforts
Jun 10th, 2019

The Kentucky Heritage Land Conservation Fund (KHLCF) has received a State Preservation Leadership Award from the American Battlefield Trust for its role in preserving and protecting battlefields and historic sites throughout the Commonwealth.

During the annual gathering of its members in Lexington, American Battlefield Trust president James Lighthizer recognized KHLCF for its “monumental contribution” to the Perryville Battlefield state historic site. The site, located in Boyle County, saw the most important Civil War battle in the western theater.

Since 1994, the KHLCF has funded the conservation of over 90,000 acres including portions of the Perryville Battlefield State Historic Site, the Battle of Munfordville at Green River Natural Area, Blue Licks Battlefield State Park and Nature Preserve, Tebb’s Bend Battlefield Heritage Area, Camp Nelson National Monument, Fort Heiman National Battlefield, and the Lincoln Boyhood Home.

The American Battlefield Trust is a national organization dedicated to preserving America’s hallowed battlegrounds and educating the public about what happened there and why it matters today. The nonprofit, nonpartisan organization has protected more than 50,000 acres associated with the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, and Civil War, including 2,856 acres in Kentucky and 3,516 acres in Tennessee.
