Why Jessamine County?

Come for the abundant natural beauty, friendly atmosphere, wealth of activities, rich history and lively local arts and music scene. Stay for the diverse economy, entrepreneurial opportunities and the glory of seasonal climate. Early settlers were attracted to what later became Nicholasville, because of four significant natural springs that spontaneously flowed from the earth and seemed to be never failing.


Just a short drive south from Lexington, Kentucky, you’ll find Jessamine County—home to a truly unique blend of carefully preserved historical and natural landmarks, numerous cultural and historical events, over 100,000 acres of fertile diverse land bordered by more miles of Kentucky River shoreline than any other Kentucky county–and, of course, a large and diverse population of interesting and friendly folks who are happy to share their love of the area with visitors.
