|Knott County, the 118th county in order of
formation, is located in the heart of the rugged mountains of eastern
Kentucky. The county is bounded by
and covers an area of 352 square miles. It was formed from portions of
Perry, Letcher, Floyd, and Breathitt counties in 1884. The county was
named for Gov. James Proctor Knott (1883-87). The county seat is HINDMAN.
Letcher County legislator Robert Bates helped to oversee the creation of
the new county, which is the site of the headwaters of several major
creeks that flow into either the Big Sandy or Kentucky rivers. Knott is
the only Kentucky county that does not have a river within its boundaries
or bordering it.
