Eastern Kentucky University in its present form was created by an act of the Kentucky General Assembly and was signed into law March 21, 1906. However, its history must also include the institutions that built the early campus--Central University and the Walter's Collegiate Institute.

This exhibit links out to smaller exhibits covering various aspects of Eastern history. Other sections will be added as research is completed.
