Henderson is located on the southern bank of the beautiful Ohio River. Daniel Boone was among the first groups of men to see this area of wooded hills and lush vegetation. Today, the City is proud to boast that its founders wisely laid out the streets 100 feet wide and also set aside acreage for a public square and the first municipal park west of the Allegheny Mountains.

Henderson thrived in the late 19th century thanks to river commerce, tobacco and agriculture. Today's thriving economy has produced a low unemployment rate with many job opportunities in manufacturing, wholesale/retail trade, construction, services and mining and quarrying. At one time, Henderson was the second richest city per capita in the world, and as a result, there remains today many charming and elaborate homes built in the early 1800ís.

The beautiful city of Henderson is located in western Kentucky on the Ohio River. With a growing population, thriving downtown, historic turn-of-the-century mansions overlooking the river, modern general aviation airport, and a recently renovated river front, Henderson exhibits the best qualities of a historic southern river town.
