Oldham County was established on December 15, 1823 from parts of Henry, Jefferson, and Shelby Counties.
It was the 74th Kentucky county, and was named in honor of Col. William Oldham of Jefferson County, an Revolutionary War officer, who was killed at St. Clair’s Defeat in 1791.
Its county seat is La Grange. Westport served as county seat from 1823 to 1827 and 1828 to 1838.
