Franklin County was formed in 1795 from
part of Woodford, Shelby, and Mercer
Counties.  In 1799 a portion of Franklin
County was removed to form Gallatin
County and in 1819 a portion was again
taken to form Owen County.  In 1827,
the third and last time, a portion of Franklin
County was taken to form Anderson.

Franklin County, located in the central
Bluegrass region of Kentucky, was
named in honor of Benjamin Franklin.
The city of Frankfort, named for

"Frank's Ford" was founded in 1786.
It serves as county seat and the
State Capital
