Our History

Woodford County has a rich history in the development of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Established as one of the nine counties of the Commonwealth in 1792; the original boundaries followed the Kentucky River from Mundy’s Landing, (located on Woodford County’s southern tip), north to the Ohio River and then east to the mouth of the Licking River at present day Covington. Today, encompassing more than 123,000 acres of the world’s finest agricultural land, the County boasts the largest total farm income in Kentucky -- largely due to our significant equine industry.
