Welcome to Spencer County

Rich in history and located in the heart of the Bluegrass, Spencer County has the best of the country while only minutes from Louisville, Shelbyville, Bardstown and Lexington, Kentucky.

Boat, swim or fish in the 3,050-acre Taylorsville Lake — the most heavily stocked fishing lake in Kentucky! Hike, bike or horseback ride the 24-mile trail system, or enjoy a game of golf with spectacular views. The rural atmosphere brings abundant deer and turkey, for nature-lovers and sports enthusiasts.

Spencer County's friendly Southern hospitality and low crime rate make it a great place to come for a relaxing visit and an even better place to call "home." Come and see for yourself, all that Spencer County has to offer!
