Kentucky Military Institute Legacy Fund
The Kentucky Military Institute was established near Frankfort, Kentucky in 1845 by Col. Robert P. T. Allen, a West Point graduate. It was never the intention of Col. Allen or his successors to train soldiers. However, Col. Allen believed that military discipline would teach young men the value of order and discipline in their daily lives thus he patterned KMI after West Point. Throughout its 126 years, the Kentucky Military Institute educated more than eleven thousand young men and boys and at its closing in 1971 KMI was the oldest privately owned military preparatory school in the United States.
The remaining alumnus of the Kentucky Military Institute have established the KMI Legacy Fund to preserve the history of the Kentucky Military Institute, by helping to defray the cost of a permanent KMI exhibit in the City of Venice's planned new Heritage Center. We thank you for supporting the KMI Legacy Endowment.
