Elliott County Kentucky was formed from Lawrence, Carter and Morgan County's by the Kentucky General Assembly in April 1869 making Elliott County Kentucky's 114th county. Elliott County was named in honor of Judge John M. Elliott (1820-1879). Our Courthouse is located in Sandy Hook.  After a fire destroyed the courthouse in 1957 most of the county records except for the deeds were lost. The Elliott County Historical Society was formed in 2002 . Our goal is to preserve Elliott County's vastly unique culture, history and genealogy through the collection of artifacts, historical documents, photographs and families histories pertaining to Elliott County.

Our research center is located at the Laurel Gorge Cultural Heritage Center on Old KY 7 (Laurel Curves). We have a growing collection of area censuses, vital records, quarterlies, historical documents, microfilm and local genealogies. Our volunteers are very knowledgeable and can assist you with your research needs. Our schedule and contact information can be found on our Contact Us page.
