Owsley County... "where peace crowns the sylvan shade." (Daniel Boone). Owsley County is a beautiful area in the Eastern Coal Field region of Kentucky. Daniel Boone is said to have owned land in the county, and the county seat, Booneville, bears his name. With a populace of fewer than 5,000, Owsley County is primarily an agrarian community. Charming and congenial, the residents of Owsley County enjoy four beautiful seasons. Mountain Hope is proud to come alongside local people working to make a difference in beautiful Owsley County!
