Welcome to Beattyville, Kentucky

Nestled in a valley where the North Fork and South Fork rivers come together to create the head waters of the Kentucky river, rests a true mountain community, Beattyville. With a population of 1,178, It is the center piece of a mountainous, timber covered county with dramatic cliffs, abundant wild life and miles of country roads and waterways. Beattyville (named for a local land owner Sam Beatty in 1843) along with communities named Heidelberg, Tallega, Fillmore, Fincastle and Cressmont, among others, boasts a rich and diverse history of trials and victories which began well before the formation of Lee as the 115th county.
