Why Anderson County?


Tucked nicely between the big cities of Lexington and Louisville, Anderson County is the perfect mixture of farm and city. From it's beginning days in the early 1800s, our heritage is preserved today and includes Civil War scrimmages and the evolution of bourbon. It's a place where the Bourbon is as old as the community and the wine is nationally acclaimed. Anderson County is the perfect place to stay when touring the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, since it is home to Wild Turkey Bourbon Distillery and Four Roses Bourbon Distillery.


Our Healing Field, dedicated in 2007, serves as a patriotic tribute to honor Kentucky's fallen heroes. We take pride in having the first ever, permanent Healing Field established in the United States and it is open year-round for all who wish to visit and honor our fallen heroes. Or join us for our annual service near Memorial Day, hosted by the American Legion Auxiliary.
