Located in Jessamine County, Nicholasville is a small town amidst the green expanse of Kentucky’s Bluegrass Region. Its southern boundary follows the Kentucky River, which offers spectacular views of the Palisades, a series of high cliffs overlooking the river. Like much of central Kentucky, Nicholasville’s economy is evolving and has become an important player in agri-tourism and wine production. In fact, the first commercial vineyard in the U.S. is located here in Jessamine County, and is celebrated each spring with the Wine and Vine Festival. Nicholasville is also a beacon for new employment in healthcare, biotechnology, education and manufacturing. Residents of Nicholasville enjoy the slower pace of its small-town charm and affordably roomy homes surrounded by horse farms and golf courses, while benefitting from expanding opportunities and close proximity to Lexington.
