We invite you to explore and discover all the many wonderful qualities that make the City of Greenup, a great place to work, play and call home.
The City of Greenup has a long and storied past. Greenup is named after the 3rd Governor of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, Christopher Greenup. Our city is located at the confluence of the Ohio and Little Sandy Rivers. We are also the county seat for Greenup County and home to the historic Greenup County Courthouse conveniently located at 314 Main Street. Greenup is also the home to many historic churches and buildings.
At the heart of it all is the Greenup City Building. Centrally located at 1005 Walnut Street, our City Building provides our residents and visitors with a multitude of services. Our Mayor, Council, and City Clerk all work from this one location. Council meetings are held here, and we are always glad to welcome public participation.
