As you said it was probably a house museum. Technically it's in Lawrence Co. that's why I wasn't familar with it. It's like a street that calls itself a town. My dad was born in Unity, Ky. by the death cert & it drove me crazy. It turns out in 1913 there was a square mile area known as Unity inside of what is now Ashland.
Ky. only started out with 3 counties in the 1700s and now has 130. Until 1803 Boyd, Carter & Lawrence were all part of what was up until then Greenup Co., Va. W.V. (VA) & Ohio were right across a narrow strip of the Ohio River. The area Boltfork is in is mostly barren or industrial now. There's just a few houses & churches left.
Lawrence County Rootsweb would be a better place to look. They have a lot of links & lost info from the past. You could also try the Lawrence County forum on here.
This is the only museum near there:
KY-182 near the Carter Caves State Park, Traces the area's natural and cultural heritage. The varied collection includes fossils, Indian and pioneer artifacts, and items from the Civil War through Vietnam ($1, May-October daily 9-5, 606/286-6012).
Hope this info helps your search.
