Welcome to Letcher County!

Letcher County Judge-executive, Jim WardI want to extend a heart-felt "Welcome!" to everybody who comes to Letcher County for the day and for those who decide to spend more time here in the county. Our county offers some of the most breath-taking scenic overlooks in the region.  We have completed the new Letcher County Recreation Center and are in the process of completing the new Letcher County Pioneer Horse Trail and are working on a regional basis to connect the Roger Breeding ATV Trail with multiple counties and later on an interstate basis with West Virginia and Virginia.

Our County has an army of volunteers that labor tirelessly throughout the year, to bring every resident and visitor in the area quality attractions and events. From early spring until late December they produce top quality functions, concerts and entertainment for all ages to attend and enjoy.

Joan and I want to thank you for coming and hope you will come back.  You will find the hospitality here surpasses any place and I want each of you to know you are always welcome!
