LA GRANGE

Region North Central Kentucky

Witness the unique charm of La Grange as a freight train rolls right down the center of Main Street in the city's historic downtown. La Grange is the county seat of Oldham County and home to great downtown shopping, art galleries, restaurants and exciting events.

Located not far from Louisville, La Grange is host to several special events throughout the year. These events include the La Grange Farmers Market, Light Up La Grange, the La Grange Loop Ironman Festival, Summer Concerts and the Spirits of La Grange Ghost Tour.

Just north of La Grange is U.S. Highway 42, designated as a Kentucky Scenic Highway. About 10 minutes northwest of La Grange is Hermitage Farm, one of the most internationally famous thoroughbred horse farms producing a Kentucky Derby winner, Breeder's Cup winner and Kentucky Oaks Winner.

In 2004, First Lady Laura Bush recognized the city of La Grange as a Preserve America Community, a designation for communities that protect and celebrate their heritage.

Visit the Discover Downtown La Grange website for more information on things to do and see in the historic downtown area and the Oldham County Tourism site for area information and events.
