The museum was originally a family home occupied by the Devous. The house and surrounding property were donated in 1910 to the City of Covington for the purpose of becoming a park and community center.  By 1950, the house became a museum featuring the eclectic collection of local resident William Behringer.  Under the direction of its first curator Ellis Crawford, the museum grew into a cornerstone attraction.  Today, Behringer-Crawford Museum is the area’s largest museum celebrating the unique arts, heritage and culture of Northern Kentucky as part of the Ohio Valley. 

Tiffany Hoppenjans has been the Curator of Collections at Behringer-Crawford Museum since 2012.  She possesses a B.A. is History and Anthropology from Western Kentucky University and a Master of Arts in Public History from Northern Kentucky University.
