Heritage

Breckinridge County was formed in 1800 and is located in the Pennyrile region of the state. The Pennyrile region of Kentucky stretches from the Land Between the Lakes in the west, across the state to the Pottsville Escarpment in the east. It is a Mississippian plateau with a large karst (landscape underlain by limestone) region that includes Mammoth Cave. The elevation in the county ranges from 383 to 920 feet above sea level. The region takes its name from the Pennyroyal (Hedeoma puligiodes – a summer wildflower).
