Welcome to Elliott County, Kentucky

Elliott County, KY established in 1869 from parts of Morgan, Lawrence, and Carter Counties. Named after John Milton Elliott, U.S. Congressman. County population as of 2010 is 7,852, it is truly a small town U.S.A. We are made up of small communities, Sandy Hook being the heart of Elliott County.
Tucked away in the hills of eastern KY, Elliott County will have you feeling like you're home with our peaceful country atmosphere. We have creeks throughout the county that run into the beautiful Grayson Lake. The creeks are perfect for kayaking, boating, and fishing. The scenery is just breathtaking!

Most of the land is used for small family farms. It's a place where the people, nature, and arts meet as one. It's a wonderful place to raise a family and where you rarely see a stranger. A place where the communities work together to create a great place to live, learn, work, and play. Whether you are here for a day or for a life time we hope you enjoy your stay.
