And the richness of the people
Nestled in the heart of the Bluegrass region, with a verdant, gently rolling landscape, Bourbon County is home to elegant Thoroughbred farms and multimillion-dollar racehorses. But, as County Judge-Executive Michael Williams says, it’s the richness of the people who make this Kentucky community unique. From a revitalized Main Street in Paris, brimming with local stores, to the tiny hamlets of Millersburg, North Middletown, Clintonville and Centerville, there is a palpable sense of pride among the people who inhabit Bourbon County’s 292 square miles.
