120 COUNTIES

Kentuckians are proud of their counties, originally formed so that people could access government within a day's traveling distance by horse, mule or foot. Most of today's Kentuckians identify their home, their growing up years and their ancestry by county. Counties shape Kentuckians' stories and provide a strongly rooted sense of place.
