Flemingsburg is a delightful little town to visit, and great place to live! Full of historic buildings, it is surrounded by beautiful rolling farmland with three lovely old wooden covered bridges. Antique shops, folk artists, and talented crafts persons complete the picture of life at an enjoyable pace, along with some Amish and Mennonites living in the countryside. Golf, fishing, camping, swimming, tennis, hiking, hunting, and boating are all available. Simple pleasures can also be enjoyed by taking a late night stroll around the town square.
Flemingsburg was founded and laid out in 1797 by George Stockton of Virginia and named for his half-brother, Colonel John Fleming. It became the county seat in 1798 when Fleming County, the state's twenty-sixth, was created. Stockton and Fleming came down the Ohio River by canoe in 1776 and were among the earliest explorers here.
Fleming County covers 351 square miles in the outer Bluegrass region of northeastern Kentucky. We are located 55 miles northeast of Lexington, Kentucky; 75 miles southeast of Cincinnati, Ohio; 130 miles east of Louisville, Kentucky; and within a day's drive of 65% of the U.S. population.
