The Mountain Workshops is a five-day immersive visual journalism workshop that takes place in a different county in Kentucky each year, capturing the stories and essence of the community in one week. This video highlights the stories of Bourbon County from the 2024 workshop.

Nestled in the heart of the Bluegrass region, with a verdant, gently rolling landscape, Bourbon County is home to elegant Thoroughbred farms and multimillion-dollar racehorses. But, as County Judge-Executive Michael Williams says, it's the richness of the people who make this Kentucky community unique. From a revitalized Main Street in Paris, brimming with local stores, to the tiny hamlets of Millersburg, North Middletown, Clintonville and Centerville, there is a palpable sense of pride among the people who inhabit Bourbon County's 292 square miles.
