Come for the abundant natural beauty, friendly atmosphere, wealth of activities, rich history and lively local arts and music scene. Stay for the diverse economy, entrepreneurial opportunities and the glory of seasonal climate. Early settlers were attracted to what later became Nicholasville, because of four significant natural springs that spontaneously flowed from the earth and seemed to be never failing.
By 1798 plans for a town were laid out by local Reverend John Metcalf. The town’s name honors Revolutionary War Colonel George Nicholas, who is celebrated as Kentucky’s first Attorney General and the father of Kentucky’s State Constitution.
