Todd County was formed in 1820 between Christian and Logan counties in the Pennyrile region of Kentucky.  The county was named for Colonel John Todd, a frontiersman and uncle of Mary Todd Lincoln.  Todd County is the birthplace of acclaimed author and poet Robert Penn Warren, the nation’s first Poet Laureate. He won the first of three Pulitzer Prizes in 1947 for All the King’s Men, and is the only person in history to have won Pulitzer Prizes for both fiction and poetry.  He was born in Guthrie in 1905.


With a total population of only 12,500, much of the county is preserved in a picturesque rural landscape. Cities within Todd County include Trenton, Guthrie, and Elkton (county seat).  Smaller communities within the county include Fairview, Clifty, Allensville, Kirkmansville, Sharon Grove, Allegre, and Daysville.


Todd County is one of the top agricultural producing counties in the state. Todd County is one of only a few of Kentucky’s 120 counties and one of only a few places in the world that produces three varieties of tobacco: burley tobacco, dark air-cured tobacco and dark fired tobacco. Contributing to that agricultural base is the oldest Amish settlement in Kentucky.
