The Kentucky Historical Society made history of its own today.

The society announced their new partnership with the Smithsonian Institution.

ABC 36's own Doug High was the moderator for the announcement which featured staff from the renowned museum.

The Kentucky Historical Society says they're excited about the affiliation because they say it will help them find new and creative ways to teach Kentuckians about the Commonwealth.

One of the society's new features will include a smart phone app that will give a personalized guide of historical landmarks across the commonwealth.
