Established in 1803 and named for the fourth Governor of Kentucky, Greenup County is located in North East Kentucky. With plenty of attractions and events during the year, no complaints can be heard from visitors or citizens. One of the area's most well-known attractions, Greenbo Lake State Resort Park, holds the pristine beauty of the Kentucky hills that inspired poet Jesse Stuart, a lifelong resident of the area. You will appreciate his visions as you visit the beautiful fieldstone lodge which bears his name and relax in front of the copper-hooded fireplace in the lobby. Greenup County is part of the Huntington-Ashland, WV-KY-OH, Metropolitan Statistical Area. We are home to eight incorporated municipalities with Flatwoods being the largest. Two of Kentucky's remaining 13 covered bridges are located in Greenup County, Bennetts Mill and Oldtown.​​
