Morehead-Rowan County

Morehead and Rowan County serve as a regional hub.  We service over 100,000 people in health care, education, recreation and retail.  That means we are the economic development hub and boast a strong workforce. We live in a community strategically located next to Interstate 64 in Eastern Kentucky that is within 6 hours to over 50% of the national population. We are proud to offer the following to those who live here or are interested in our area:

Morehead State University
Maysville Community and Technical College—Rowan Campus
St. Claire Regional Medical Center
Cave Run Lake, Daniel Boone National Forest
500 acre MMRC Regional Industrial Park
A public school system rated one of the top 100 in the nation
A new 5500', the largest general avaition airport in Eastern Kentucky
Designated Trail Town

Morehead and Rowan County is a progressive community taking the challenges necessary to ensure planned growth and development.  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.

We offer a wonderful place to visit and live.  Thank you very much for visiting our web site and we hope that you will choose to take a closer look at this place we are proud to call home!
