Explore Bracken County
Formed in 1796, Bracken County features a lush landscape with rolling hills, ancient woodlands, scenic byways, and serene waterways. In the north, the Mary Ingles Scenic Byway (better known as Route 8) criss-crosses the county, following the twists and turns of the mighty Ohio River. The southern portion of the county is mostly agrarian, rich farmland where corn, tobacco, cattle and, of course, horses are raised. In the middle rests Brooksville, the county seat.
