Morehead and Rowan County is a progressive community taking the challenges necessary to ensure planned growth and development. At this moment, the end of 2016, we have approximately $160 million in capital construction projects underway. We are home to Morehead State University, who is only one of four universities in the nation to offer a space science degree and will soon have the Center for Advanced Manufacturing through Maysville Community & Technical College to train our workforce in specialized fields.
