Henderson thrived in the late 19th century thanks to river commerce, tobacco and agriculture. Today's thriving economy has produced a low unemployment rate with many job opportunities in manufacturing, wholesale/retail trade, construction, services and mining and quarrying. At one time, Henderson was the second richest city per capita in the world, and as a result, there remains today many charming and elaborate homes built in the early 1800ís.
The beautiful city of Henderson is located in western Kentucky on the Ohio River. With a growing population, thriving downtown, historic turn-of-the-century mansions overlooking the river, modern general aviation airport, and a recently renovated river front, Henderson exhibits the best qualities of a historic southern river town.
