Welcome to Our Home!


"Beginning in December 1883 Graves County was established in the center of the Jackson Purchase.  From then on Graves County grew rapidly as new settlers arrived to take advantage of the reasonable land rates.  Adjacent forest gave way to cultivated fields of tobacco and corn.  Soon churches and schools were established and Graves County began a steady growth."
 

Sometimes we hate to say it out loud but Graves County hasn't changed much since the year it was established.  People still move here to settle to take advantage of reasonable land rates.  We still have plenty of forests that support a strong logging industry as well as plenty of recreational hunting for residents and visitors.  We still have plenty of cultivated fields of tobacco and corn.  We have a large population of churches throughout the county that minister to large congregations.  And our schools are locally, regionally and nationally acclaimed.  We have a wonderful hospital that attracts physicians to our way of life.  Graves County is a great place to visit, to live and to raise your family.
 

And we love having you here.  We'd like to invite you to come see us.  You'd like it here.  Our county, one of the largest geographically in the state of Kentucky, is ideal if you enjoy outdoor recreation.  We have places to hike, fish and hunt.  There are acres upon acres for horseback riding, ATV riding or just for a Sunday drive.  Check out all that we have to offer here in our piece of paradise.
 

With our diverse heritage and history, many find that Graves County is a place to learn where we have all come from.  Our history is well-documented.  Many of the teachings of our fathers and grandfathers are still practiced.  Whether you enjoy quilting, bee-keeping, making sausage or brooms or curing tobacco or hams, many of us work as generations did before us.
 

If you choose to stay you will find opportunities in both agriculture and industry.  Many of our families still make a living raising corn, soybeans, beef, pork, goats, and tobacco.  Others take advantage of area industry to develop and maintain an above-average quality of life.  Or if you are looking for a place to continue your education, many have found the Jackson Purchase rich in higher education.
 

The County Government strives to make our home the best place to be.  We pride ourselves in that fact that we offer a safe place for our citizens to live and to work.  We continually look for areas to improve and work with our residents to make all of our homes the best they can be.
 

If you get a chance to head into our part of Kentucky, we want you to know that you are welcome.  And we look forward to having you here.
