Mason County, tucked away in a sweeping arm of the Ohio River, is rich in heritage and historical land-markings. Our intimate association of such famous pioneers as Simon Kenton, Daniel Boone, Robert Patterson, Thomas Williams and William Wood is appealing to many of our visitors.
Mason County was formed by an Act of the Kentucky Legislature from Bourbon County in May, 1788. Named for George Mason, the Virginian who wrote the constitution for his state of which we were once a part, and who authored the Bill of Rights for the Nation, we have a proud heritage and prospectful future to anticipate.
For over two hundred years, the good people of Mason County have shared a common cause and friendship with the people throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Our highest level of honor, respect and friendship is bestowed upon you, as we want you to feel at “home” here in Mason County.
