Why Harrison County?

Harrison County is growing and expanding our economic base and our opportunities for citizens, young and old, to live in a safe, peaceful, and vibrant community. We have great schools, great neighborhoods, and great businesses. Our police and fire departments are second to none. Our utility and public works department are excellent at responding to the needs of our citizens. Our city commission and city staff seek to make your visit to our city, whether in person or via the internet, a great experience.


As a community we are proud of our farming heritage. The fertile soil and climate of the region are ideally suited to the cultivation of burley tobacco which has had a major economic, social and cultural influence on Cynthiana and Harrison County since the early 19th century.


We also boast numerous manufacturing companies such as 3M(Post-it pads and scotch tape), E.D. Bullard(Hardhats and protective equipment).
