Henry Co., KY

Henry County, KY


The county was founded in 1798 from portions of Shelby County and named for the statesman and governor of Virginia Patrick Henry. The original boundary of Henry County included several miles of frontage on the Ohio River. That frontage was gradually eroded as three neighboring counties (Oldham, Trimble and Carroll) were carved out of portions of Henry County during the early 1800's.
