Clark County Real Estate
Like much of Kentucky state, Clark County was formally established only a few years after the Revolutionary War and named after a war hero, General George Rogers Clark. Today, Clark County is home to more than 36,000, of which more than 95 percent were homeowners and title to residential property. Organizationally, Clark County is broken up into five major districts and one central 6th administrative district for the county government.
With regards to transportation linkages, the major route through the County is Interstate 64 running east-west. Additionally, the area has six other state routes that allow vehicle access south of the Interstate. Winchester is the main hub of the country administrative seat, but Clark County includes three other towns as well (Colby, Pinchem, and Rabbit Town). The larger complex of Lexington, KY sits to the west of the County and is accessed via Interstate 64 or State Route 60.
As of 2016, the cost of living in the county was a bit less than the nationwide average, attracting a population of 20 percent professional, 15 percent in construction, and the remainder working in government of some type, including education.
