Audubon State Park

Opened1938

The Audubon Museum (of Henderson, Ky.) serves as a tribute to the life and work of J.J. Audubon in more ways than one. While the museum proudly displays a large collection of Audubon's original art, the design of the French heritage building itself also includes several small niches in its tower, specifically designed for nesting birds, of which Mr. Audubon was so fond.

The museum, which is highlighted by the surrounding 700 acre Audubon Park, opened in 1938 following years of work in the park by several New Deal-era organizations like the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) and the Works Progress Administration (WPA).
