Located just north of the crossroads of I-75 and I-64, Georgetown
and Scott County are located 10 miles north of Lexington, the Horse
Capital of the World. Georgetown was founded in 1790 by the Baptist
minister Elijah Craig. The Reverend Craig is perhaps best known
for his world famous invention, bourbon whiskey.
Today, Georgetown is a blend of old and new. Noted for its profusion
of historic houses and perhaps the finest antique shopping in the
state, it is also one of Kentucky's fastest growing communities
and the American home of Toyota's Camry, Sienna, and Avalon production
facility. Each August, Georgetown is also host to the Cincinnati
Bengals' training camp.
Our back roads offer beautiful horse farms, Irish fieldstone fences,
the meandering Elkhorn and Eagle creeks and rolling fields of
and cattle. You'll find small, quaint communities like Stamping
Ground and Sadieville. Elkhorn Creek offers both canoeists and
a rewarding and relaxing experience.
Georgetown is the ideal place to live, visit, or just relax. Come
