Welcome to Georgetown, a Kentucky Treasure, located in the heart of Scott County just north of the cross roads of I-75 and I-64. Georgetown is ideally located 10 miles north of Lexington, the “Horse Capital of the World." Georgetown was founded in 1790 by Baptist minister Elijah Craig. Reverend Craig is perhaps best known for his world famous invention, "bourbon" whiskey.

Georgetown is also home of Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky, Inc. where the top ranked Camry, Camry Hybrid, Avalon, and Venza vehicles are produced. Factory Stores Shopping Center offers outlet stores for shopping delight. Just over the Scott County line explore the Kentucky Horse Park - the only park in the world dedicated to the horse.
