"Little, but in the middle of it all."

Welcome to Gallatin County, Kentucky! Derived from Franklin and Shelby Counties, Gallatin County was established in 1798 as Kentucky's 33rd county. Gallatin County is nestled on the fertile banks of the Ohio River in Northern Kentucky, in the "Golden Triangle," of Cincinnati, Louisville and Lexington.

This rural gem boasts scenic waterways, picturesque country roads, quaint communities, and lots of friendly folks. Gallatin County has been proclaimed the Racecar Capital of the State, with the attraction of the Kentucky Speedway and Bluegrass Motorsports Park. Along with racing, enjoy the water sports offered by the Ohio River and use of two of our river marinas for your boating pleasure.

Gallatin County is small in size but large in hospitality. It has transformed from quiet rural farmland to a vibrant growing community. Our county thrives on its education and jobs for our students, as well as our citizens.
