THE CAMP NELSON RESTORATION AND PRESERVATION FOUNDATION
THE CAMP NELSON RESTORATION AND PRESERVATION FOUNDATION is a private not-for-profit group of concerned citizens working in partnership with local, state, and federal government to preserve and interpret the Camp Nelson Civil War site. Our mission is to tell the Camp Nelson story through the restoration and interpretation of the camp. The site will serve the Commonwealth as an education resource that will tell the story of a working quartermaster depot and the efforts of African-Americans to fight for their freedom.
We invite you to visit the site again and again to review our progress in the creation of a major Civil War History/Heritage Park in Kentuckyıs beautiful Bluegrass region, as we acquire property and begin restoration efforts. We want to express our gratitude to the Kentucky Heritage Council, the Kentucky Humanities Council, the Jessamine County Fiscal Court and the Kentucky Department of Transportation for making the preservation of this unique part of Kentuckyıs heritage possible. Meetings are held at 7:00 p.m. on the first Monday of the month at the restored Oliver Perry House on US27 in Nicholasville. For more information, please call (859) 881-5716.
