Guess I’ll start with the pros...short commute to Lexington & Frankfort (state workers), small town feeling, country roads/sightseeing, education is average, very family friendly, not a lot of crime

Cons...where to start...affordability (houses being built start out at least $250k), everyone knows everyone, overpriced homes, no entertainment (lex & Frankfort only 15-20 mins away tho), not a lot diverse choices food wise, have more auto parts stores than entertainment venues, a lot of close-minded folks.
If you’re 30 years of age or older with a good income & family this is the perfect city for you. If you’re younger with no kids & you don’t have any connections to the city, I would look elsewhere.

I have been a resident of Versailles, KY my entire life. On any given Friday night in the fall, you can be cheering on the Yellow Jackets football team, driving the backroads to see some of the most beautiful horse farms this country has to offer, or visiting our real live castle on Versailles road. There is so much diverse culture and rich Kentucky history here! If you are looking for a place to live that is close enough to big city life to visit but to still give you the "back home" country small town living then Versailles is it!
I have been living here for 13 years. And I have loved this place each and every day that I have been here. And there is so much to see here, like farms and horses and livestock, it is just all around the place to be, and to raise a family!
