Welcome to Adair County!
We’re very proud of our community and are delighted that you are visiting us through our website.
Adair County is a rural community of 17,244 residents, located in south central Kentucky, just two hours from Louisville, home of the Kentucky Derby, and two hours from Frankfort, the State Capital.
Although, we have a somewhat rural setting, we are located directly on the Louie B. Nunn Parkway. This gives us access to all the major interstates.
Adair County’s town square is a cornerstone of the community with an abundance of history, featuring a central courthouse and 19th Century buildings and churches.
Anytime is a good time to visit Adair County, but the summer months are an especially good time to visit because we have Green River Lake located right here in Adair County and are only minutes from Lake Cumberland State Park. Both offer outstanding fishing, camping, and water sports opportunities.
Adair County is the home of Lindsey Wilson College. Lindsey Wilson College is a four-year liberal arts college affiliated with the Kentucky Conference of the United Methodist Church. Since 1988 the college academic offerings have increased from three majors to its current level of twenty majors.
