Henry County Town Hall

A picturesque oasis with fantastic amenities.

Henry County is located in what could be called a ‘golden triangle.’ Depending on the area of our relatively large county, you can be in Louisville, Lexington, or Cincinnati in an hour or less. We have the best of rural lifestyles with proximity to the amenities cities provide. Henry County rests northeast of Louisville on I-71 with two major exits and picturesque acres that expand into the scenic Kentucky River valley. The bourbon industry is making a strong presence in the county with a huge expansion of the Angel’s Envy brand and other distillers with sites and plans for more.
