Welcome
to Trimble County, Kentucky


Trimble County lies along the Ohio River, some 40 miles upstream from Louisville and some 75 miles downstream from Cincinnati, Ohio. It is on the south bank, opposite Madison, Indiana. In December 1836 the Kentucky General Assembly established Trimble County. Taking lands from Henry , Oldham and Gallatin Counties, the new county was formed on the banks of the Ohio River, among the rolling hills almost midway between Louisville and Cincinnati. It was named for the Kentucky lawyer and United States Supreme Court Justice, Robert Trimble. The formal government of Trimble County was first organized on March 27, 1837.

Two incorporated towns of Trimble County are historic indeed. The river town of Milton, one of the oldest towns in Kentucky, was established by the law of Virginia in 1789, three years before Kentucky became a state. Bedford, the County seat, was first settled about 1805 and was chartered by Kentucky in 1816.

Trimble County is now bordered on the southwest by Oldham County, the southeast by Henry County, the east by Carroll County and the west and north by the Ohio River. Across the river lies Clark County, Indiana to the west and Jefferson County, Indiana to the north. The 1990 U.S. Census recorded a county population of 6090 living within its 148 square miles - an average of 41.1 persons per square mile.

The Kentucky GenWeb Project


In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Kentucky Comprehensive Genealogy Database. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Kentucky, where collected databases would be stored. In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they could be located in the index. At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page.
