Official County


Barren County was established in 1798 from land given by Green County and Warren County. Like most of south central Kentucky, Barren County was settled by the 'Scots-Irish, and still bears many cultural aspects that trace back to that heritage. The Scottish heritage is the most evident, as indicated by the name of the county seat, which is named for Glasgow, Scotland, and is celebrated annually with the Glasgow Highland Games, one of three highland games held each year in Kentucky.
