Welcome to Shelby County Kentucky!

People living here get the best of both worlds. Situated between Louisville and Lexington, it is a perfect place to settle. Not only do you get the downhome feel of a small town, but you are close enough to the more metropolitan cities to enjoy all aspects of life without the big city feel. Stroll the quaint streets of downtown Shelbyville, with its antique shops, coffee house and boutiques. Just a few miles down the road you'll find The Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass in beautiful Simpsonville.

Shelby County is known as the Saddlebred Capital of the World. Take a drive in any direction and marvel at the beautiful horse farms with horses grazing lazily in the fields.

Plan a visit to wonderful Shelby County!
