Area Information

Located minutes from historic Maysville and the Ohio River, Mason County is admired for its picturesque scenery and small town river-side character. Formed in 1789, Mason County is located along the Ohio River at the port originally known as Limestone, now Maysville. Mayslick was founded in 1788 and named for William May, formerly called May's Spring a natural saline spring at the site. Accessed by US68, the original Limestone Trace built c1790, and still today a major transportation route through the Bluegrass Region. Along the Trace (now the Simon Kenton Memorial Highway) is retained an impressive collection of intact settlement era houses and a variety of architecture harkening to the period of settlement, leading from Maysville to the Capital City of Frankfort. Hundreds of properties are listed in the National Register of Historic Places along this route including Mayslick, Old Washington and Maysville (Limestone).
