Welcome to Grayson County, Kentucky!
Grayson County, Kentucky welcomes you. The county was established in 1810 as the 54th county in Kentucky. It is said the county is named for Col. William Grayson, a Virginian statesman and Revolutionary War aide to General George Washington, who once owned over 5000 acres which included the western end of the county. Washington purchased the land from Henry Lee (father of Robert E. Lee) by trading his favorite horse for it.
