Knox County, located in the southeastern part of Kentucky, was established in 1799, named after Henry Knox, the first United States Secretary of War. The county seat is Barbourville, a small town with a population of around 3,165 as of the 2010 census. The town itself was founded by John William Black, who established a farm in the region in 1797. The town was originally known as "Magee's Station" but was renamed later to honor James Barbour, a Kentucky lawyer and statesman.

The area was initially inhabited by Native American tribes such as the Cherokee, Shawnee, and Chickasaw before European settlers arrived in the late 18th century. The first European settlers to the region were a mix of families from Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. The settlers faced several challenges, with rough terrains and conflicts with Native American tribes being the prominent issues.

An interesting fun fact about Knox County is its connection to the Civil War. The Battle of Barbourville was a minor skirmish that took place on September 19, 1861, between the Confederate forces led by General Felix Zollicoffer and the Union forces under Colonel Theophilus Garrard. Although a minor engagement, it is notable for being one of the earliest Civil War battles in Kentucky. Despite the Confederate forces achieving victory in this skirmish, Kentucky would ultimately remain a part of the Union throughout the Civil War.
