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. Nearby Lexington, Louisville and Frankfort provide dining, shopping and other activities.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Smoke Information From National Weather Service due to last nights barn fire involving nearly 500 hay bales.

Attached you will find the smoke dispersion map, valid for this afternoon. Light winds, and a layer of warm air around 4000 ft may help trap some of the smoke and prevent it from ventilating out of the area. The worst air quality is still expected to be north of Lawrenceburg near the fire, and should have smoke dispersion slowly moving to the west-northwest.

Are you paying the community for the toxic air quality? EDIT:YALL IM SO SORRY I READ THAT AS A CONTROL BURN. NOT AN ACCIDENTAL BURN. I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND THE BACKLASH…..

Thank you for the info. I hope no animals were involved.

Been pretty clear here in Alton rd

Is this close to me? It looks like it's going towards Versailles.

Prayers for the family.

Last Night Anderson County Fire Department worked vigorously for several hours in reference to a hay barn fire on Jenny Lillard Rd.
Anderson County Fire Department would like to let residents in this area know due to heavy smoke lingering, drive with caution.
Approximately 500 bales will continue to burn for around 2-3 weeks and will be monitored by ACFD. Please allow yourself extra time and be cautious in this area.
Our thought and prayers go out to this family.
Thank you to every unit on your efforts and hard work on this call.
