Welcome to the City of Leitchfield!

Mayor William H. Thomason.
Mayor William H. Thomason

On behalf of our residents and city government I would like to say welcome to the City of Leitchfield.

Leitchfield is the county seat for Grayson County, Kentucky.  We are centrally located at Exit 107 off the Western Kentucky Parkway. Our town is located between two of our most valuable assets, our Twin Lakes.  Nolin Lake, which we share with Edmonson and Hart Counties to the South and Rough River Lake, which we share with Breckinridge County to the North.  Both lakes provide entertainment for our residents as well as the visitors to our area during the warm seasons.

Our community is also a home to several factories, progressive city services, successful schools and thousands of hard working people. The Leitchfield and Grayson County area provides diversity and options for any one who chooses to live, work or visit the area. 

I or anyone within our city government can provide information and/or assistance in facilitating almost any type of requests. Please feel free to call or e-mail us at City Hall if we can help in anyway.

Come visit us! We’re sure you’ll find something to enjoy here!


William H Thomason, Mayor
City Of Leitchfield
