Bourbon County

Bourbon County, Kentucky was named so in gratitude to the French House of Bourbon, particularly Louis XVI, whose alliance during the American Revolution proved invaluable. Bourbon County has eight distinct communities: Cane Ridge, Centerville, Clintonville, Little Rock, Millersburg, North Middletown, Paris (the county seat), and Ruddles Mill. They are all represented in what is perhaps the most magnificent county courthouse in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Bourbon County is home to some of the finest Thoroughbred horse farms in the world, including Adena Springs, Claiborne, Darley Stonerside, Greenwood Lodge, Hurricane Hills, Stone Farm, Stoneleigh, Stonereath, and Xalapa. Runnymede Farm, the Commonwealth’s oldest, continually-operated Thoroughbred breeding operation, is located on 365-magnificent acres along the Cynthiana Road.
