Adair County, founded in 1802, is a rural community of approximately 19,000 residents that is located directly on the Louie B. Nunn Parkway connecting to I-65 and I-75.  Adair County's town square is a cornerstone of the community with an abundance of history and features a centrally located courthouse and 19th Century buildings and churches.  

Adair County is a county of beautiful countryside, a hunter's and fisherman's paradise of abundant wildlife and fish, is home to the stunning green water of the Green River and Green River Lake with Lake Cumberland and the Lake Cumberland State Resort Park only a short drive away.  Adair County is also home of Lindsey Wilson College.  Our most valuable assets are the residents of Adair County.  The citizens are friendly, caring, hardworking, and giving people!
