Shelby County was established in 1819 with Hardin serving as the first County seat. The name Shelby came from General Isaac Shelby, an officer in the American Revolution who was noted for his bravery and honesty, and was elected Governor of Kentucky. The people of the County chose the name Shelby because many of them were from Kentucky and admired General Shelby a great deal.
The 420 square-mile county is a blend of agriculture and industry giving Shelby County a stable economy. The County is made up of 14 townships with trustees handling duties in each, eight incorporated villages (Anna, Botkins, Fort Loramie, Kettlersville, Lockington, Port Jefferson, Jackson Center and Russia) and one city (Sidney). The population of the County is 49,423.
