From Anderson County KYGenWeb Project

Anderson County, located in Kentucky's Bluegrass region, was established on January 16, 1827 and was formed from Franklin, Mercer, and Washington counties. It was named in honor of Richard Clough Anderson, Jr. (1788-1826), Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, first U.S. minister to Columbia, and nephew of General George Rogers Clark.

The county seat is the city of Lawrenceburg, located approximately 30 miles west of Lexington and 12 miles south of the state capital of Frankfort and 50+ miles east of Louisville. It was incorporated originally as Lawrence in 1820.
