Woodford County, located in the heart of Kentucky, is a region with a rich history that dates back to the pre-colonial era. Initially inhabited by Native American tribes, European settlers began to arrive in the area in the mid-1700s. The county was officially established in 1788, named after William Woodford, an American Revolutionary War General. It was the fifth county to be formed in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
The region is renowned for its fertile land and agricultural production, primarily in horse breeding and the bourbon industry. Versailles, the county seat, was established in 1792 and is named after Versailles, France, in honor of the French who supported the Americans during the Revolutionary War. In addition to Versailles, the county is home to the city of Midway, established in 1835 as the first stop on the railroad line between Lexington and Frankfort, the state capital.
Woodford County's picturesque landscape is adorned with historic sites, such as the Jack Jouett House, home of the "Paul Revere of the South," and notable horse farms like Ashford Stud, which houses the famous stallion American Pharoah, the first Triple Crown winner in 37 years (2015). The county also boasts a vibrant bourbon industry, with distilleries like Woodford Reserve, a National Historic Landmark, which has roots dating back to 1812.
A fun fact about this area is that Midway, Woodford County's other city, was uniquely named for its equidistant location between Lexington and Frankfort, making it a "midway" point. The city is known for its charming, picturesque streets and vibrant historic district, attracting visitors from all over the country.
In summary, Woodford County boasts a rich history founded in 1788, notable agricultural production, equestrian achievements, and a thriving bourbon industry. Its cities, Versailles and Midway, demonstrate the county's intriguing and diverse past.
