Show your support of the Floyd County Historical Society as we collect and share the rich history of Floyd County. Your donations help us protect fragile documents and artifacts; mount exhibits in our museum at The Ridgemont; and expand our educational programming.
Visit the Floyd County Historical Society Museum at 217 North Locust Street in Floyd. Our home is the century-old Ridgemont, completed in 1914 by master builder Lather Hylton to serve as Floyd County's first hospital. The Floyd County Historical Preservation Trust maintains this property.
The Floyd County Historical Society Museum is open Thursdays and Fridays from noon to 4:00 pm and Saturdays from 11:00 am to 3 pm through December.
Among the notable athletes featured in the new "Recreation and Sports History of Floyd County" exhibit are NASCAR great Curtis Turner, and pitchers Don and Deward Williams who began their careers playing for the Floyd Blue Sox. The exhibit opens April 22, 2017 and runs through December.
