Most accidents happen close to home. And that’s where our agents happen to be. It only makes sense: If the trees and curbs and other drivers you may run into are right around your neighborhood, shouldn’t your insurance company be there, too, ready in a minute to begin the process of putting things back to normal? At Kentucky Farm Bureau, we think so, which is why there’s an experienced and committed KFB agent in every Kentucky county. So when you need them, you have local access to an agent who has not only been around the insurance block, but they may even live on your block.

Spencer County Spencer County is where the path less traveled gives you reasons to remember where you’ve been. It’s a place where people aren’t afraid to say hello to strangers, invite them in for coffee and convince them there’s no better place on Earth than where they’re currently standing. In Spencer County, store owners know their customers by name and the gentle, laid-back attitude of residents offers a change from big city pressures. It’s where live music fills the air on summer evenings and the views of Taylorsville Lake from area resorts take your breath away and where taking care of your neighbors is part of everyday life. Business With so many outdoor activities surrounding 3,050-acre Taylorsville Lake, tourism is big business in Spencer County. Edgewater Resort offers visitors to Spencer County incredible views and accommodations on a 163acre tract overlooking Taylorsville Lake. In addition to tourism, the county is poised for industrial interest as well with the 51-acre Taylorsville Business Park. Proposals have been made to create a new Taylorsville City Park, which will add to the landscape of the downtown area, as will additions to its Main Street corridor. Major Attractions, Activities & Dining Anglers catch bass, bluegill, catfish and crappie in abundance while pleasure boaters enjoy 60 miles of pristine shoreline alongside Taylorsville Lake State Park. The Horseman’s Camp at the park offers an added experience for horse lovers who enjoy sleeping under the stars. Spencer County extends an invitation to get back to the basics of life, where parents can teach their children how to fish or people of all ages can show off their wake boarding or water skiing skills. In addition to the lake, several venues invite the public to understand Spencer County’s agricultural roots, including working farm tours and farmer’s markets. Main Street in Taylorsville offers a series of live musical performances on various summer evenings and the 200-acre Tanglewood Golf Course is a natural draw for golfers in the area. The annual arts fair, Kentucky Gourd Show, Light Up Salt River and the Spencer County Octoberfest also draw crowds from around the region. Hometown cooking is the secret ingredient for many one-of-a-kind restaurants in Spencer County. The historic Ashes Creek Schoolhouse and Yates Log Cabin symbolize the rich heritage of the area, reminding us where this growing community originally began. The friendliness, southern hospitality and low crime rate make Spencer County a natural draw for many. And, with the natural beauty of Taylorsville Lake State Resort Park, Spencer County is simply hard to resist.

If you’re craving a peaceful lifestyle in a quaint rural atmosphere, Henry County has much to offer. Like many who appreciate its beauty and historic ambiance, you too might become accustomed to the hospitable nature and easy-going attitude of a community committed to making the most of its agricultural assets. Attractive housing options are available in the quaint downtowns of the county in addition to several up-and-coming subdivisions, including a new development in the northwest part of the county that includes upscale homes surrounded by lush green fields and open spaces. Beautiful country roads border farms and homes on large lots.

Clark County, IN Located just a stone’s throw from Downtown Louisville, Clark County is a place that is as ambitious as the famous explorer for which it is named. It’s where gardens are more than just gardens and where thousands of people migrate in the fall to find just the right pumpkin. In Clark County the beauty of the Ohio River is celebrated and preserved in a community that embodies an invigorating enthusiasm for a promising future.
