Bourbon County & Paris, Kentucky
Bourbon County, Kentucky was originally Bourbon County, Virginia. Bourbon County, Virginia was split up to make several Kentucky counties including present day Bourbon County. Bourbon County was named after the royal French Family (The Bourbon’s) who helped assist Americans in their War of Independence. Paris, Kentucky was named after Paris, France. Paris is the county seat of Bourbon County with a large portion of the population residing within city limits. Bourbon County’s population as of 2010 was almost 20,000 residents with half of those residents residing in Paris. Kentucky is famous for its bourbon whiskey, but despite its name, Bourbon County doesn’t produce or sell any type of Bourbon. The whiskey was named after Bourbon County only to distinguish itself from other regional whiskeys. The Bourbon County court house was named “The Most Beautiful Court House in Kentucky.” Kentucky still has thirteen covered bridges and one of those is still in Bourbon County. The city of Paris has a tourism motto of “Horses, History and Hospitality” which makes perfect sense once you visit the city. The scenic route on US-27 features horse farms on both sides of the highway. Paris has taken the initiative to preserve the history of the city by reconstructing the facades of a lot of the downtown buildings. Anywhere you visit in Kentucky, you’ll be greeted with warm, southern hospitality.
Since it is a smaller community, people will travel to Lexington and surrounding cities for work, school, entertainment and shopping. In 2013 there were 550 reported motor vehicle accidents in Bourbon County.
