Harrison

The City of Cynthiana is located along the banks of the South Fork of the Licking River:  28 miles Northeast of Lexington, 90 miles from Louisville, and 60 miles South of Cincinnati. The fertile soil and climate of the region are ideally suited to the cultivation of burley tobacco which has had a major economic, social and cultural influence on Harrison County since the early 19th century. Burley tobacco is still produced here on a smaller scale along with hay, corn, and beef cattle. Cynthiana also boasts several manufacturing companies such as 3M, which produces the famous “Post It Notepads”, and E.D. Bullard Co., which manufactures a wide range of safety equipment.
