Within the heart of central Kentucky's Bluegrass Region lies the historic town of Nicholasville. The county seat of Jessamine County, Nicholasville is located 12 miles south of Lexington. Nicholasville was named for Colonel George Nicholas, "The Father of the Kentucky Constitution" and the state's first attorney general. This town of 28,000 residents is known for its industry and manufacturing, as well as for the beautiful antique shops located within the downtown area. Residents enjoy an unsurpassed quality of life and unlimited diversity in artistic, cultural, educational and recreational opportunities.
Jessamine County is often called the "Garden Area" of Central Kentucky for its lush vegetation, rambling creeks and considerable Kentucky River frontage. Thoroughbred horse farms and championship golf courses exist comfortably side-by-side. The Inner Bluegrass Region is bordered on two sides by the mighty Ohio River and a ring of hills known as the Knobs. This rolling plateau is named for Kentucky's famous bluegrass and has an underlying bed of limestone. A major Bluegrass Region attraction is the Jim Beam Nature Preserve, dedicated to protecting and preserving Kentucky's unique plant life and majestic limestone cliffs.
Education is a high priority in the town. Jessamine County Schools serve more than 6,000 students who enjoy a favorable student-teacher ratio.
