Official Website

The county was formed from a part of Fayette County, Virginia in 1788. It was named for William Woodford, an American Revolutionary War general from Virginia who died while a prisoner of war in 1780. It was the last of the original nine counties established that formed the Commonwealth of Kentucky in 1792.

Woodford County is home to one of Kentucky's oldest bourbon whiskey distilleries, Labrot & Graham (established 1812, now owned by Brown–Forman, which produces the Woodford Reserve brand); and to the Life Adventure Center, the Weisenberger flour mill and the Kentucky Castle.

Queen Elizabeth II stayed in Woodford County at Lane's End Farm in May 2007 before she attended the Kentucky Derby in Louisville.
