Anderson County was formed in 1827. As of 2010, the population was 21,421 and by 2016 has grown to 22,158.

History

Its county seat is Lawrenceburg. The county is named for Richard Clough Anderson, a Kentucky Legislator, U.S. Congressman and minister to Colombia.

The county is in the heart of the Kentucky Bluegrass region along the Kentucky River. From its beginning days in the early 1800s, its heritage is preserved today and includes Civil War scrimmages, the gravesite of the late great-grandparents of department store founder J.C. Penney, the story of African American Anna Mac Clarke, and the evolution of bourbon.

Anderson County is business friendly with easy access to airports in Louisville and Lexington as well as easy interstate highway access.
