Welcome to Jackson County Kentucky

Judge Executive Shane Gabbard

On behalf of the Jackson County Fiscal Court it is my sincere pleasure to welcome you to the Official Jackson County Web site. We Hope you find our site informative and helpful. There are 120 counties in Kentucky and it’s my belief that Jackson County is one of the most beautiful. The 56,000 acres of National Forrest that surrounds our communities really reflects the blessings and closeness of rural living. We are rural living at its best and our citizens show that by their hospitality. We have everything from Amish Communities to Old West and historically recreated towns. McKee is the only incorporated city in the county and also serves as the county seat. We may not have all the modern conveniences of city life but we will go out of our way to make you feel welcome. We are proud of our conservative family values here in our county and hope that it rubs off on you while you are here. God has blessed us and we pray the same for you. Feel free to visit us anytime.
