History

The Scottish Society of Louisville was established in 1993 as a non-profit organization to enrich the cultural lives of members in Kentucky and Indiana. It offers exposure to Scottish heritage and preserves, enhances and fosters pride in our Scottish ancestry. Since 1993, it has grown from 25 members to more than 150. Many of our local members have Scottish ancestry in their family background and are anxious to research their heritage, but Scottish ancestry is not a requirement to join. The Society quickly outgrew members’ homes for meetings and found a new home at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church. As it grew, the Society held meetings at Strathmoor Presbyterian Church, and in 2017, it moved to Christ Church United Methodist, 4614 Brownsboro Road, Louisville, KY.

The Society sponsors many local and regional activities and has national affiliations with other Scottish organizations.

The Scottish Society of Louisville is a nonsectarian organization. There is no religious affiliation.
