Background
In December 1836 the Kentucky General Assembly established Trimble County. Taking lands from Henry, Oldham and Gallatin Counties, the new county was formed on the banks of the Ohio River, among the rolling hills almost midway between Louisville and Cincinnati. It was named for the Kentucky lawyer and United States Supreme Court Justice, Robert Trimble. The formal government of Trimble County was first organized on March 27, 1837.

Two incorporated towns of Trimble County are historic indeed. The river town of Milton, one of the oldest towns in Kentucky, was established by the law of Virginia in 1789, three years before Kentucky became a state. Bedford, the County seat, was first settled about 1805 and was chartered by Kentucky in 1816.
