While we serve all of Northern Kentucky and points to the south, Ashcraft Real Estate Services calls Owen County "home". Owen County, and more specifically Owenton, will not be found on anyone's bucket list of destinations. Most folks drive by on the interstate (I-64, I-71, and I-75 surround the county), see several exits with "Owenton" included, and assume that it is a large town. Spoiler alert: it is not.
While it is not a large town, it is our town. Since the mid-1970's, Ashcraft Real Estate Services has proudly called Owenton home. Our founder moved his family to Owenton in 1979 after basing the business there much earlier. I was not even 3 years old when Dad, our founder, introduced me to Owen County by making me a resident. After moving to Lexington for college, I came back to Owenton to start my family and build on what my dad had started long ago.
But why? That is a question that I have been asked many times before, and is the basis of this post and many future posts. I love Owen County for many reasons, and want to share those reasons with everyone. In the series to come, I will be highlighting some of the businesses, people, and places that make Owen County special. Until then, take minute to visit the Owen County Tourism website.
