As Mayor of the City of Beattyville, I would like to welcome you to the City of Beattyville’s official website.

Beattyville, where the Kentucky River begins, is a quaint, small community with an abundance of beautiful scenery and natural resources. We take great pride in the rich history of our town and its people. Our Main Street is made up of small businesses, local shops, and eateries.

The City of Beattyville offers a wide variety of services including 24/7 police protection, maintenance of streets and infrastructure, parks and recreational activities, water and sewer services, and solid waste management.

Whether you are a resident or visitor of our community I invite you to browse through the contents of our website. We hope you will find it to be a useful tool in finding information about news on projects, festivals & community events, and public services.

I am proud to have called Beattyville my home my entire life. It’s a great place to do business, visit or live. Come see us!

Mayor Edward Scott Jackson

About Beattyville

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.
