As Mayor, I am committed to making our community a better place to live, work and raise a family. Benton's greatest asset is our citizens and their willingness to work together. As Mayor I invite you to take a look around our City and discover a community rich in history while focused on the future.

We want the City of Benton to be a community that is safe, clean, healthy and prosperous. A special place we are proud to call home. A proactive community that draws its strength from its heritage while respecting the dignity of the individual.

The small town of Benton, KY lies in the far western part of the Bluegrass state in Marshall County. Benton’s geographical location is the center of the county in a nest of hills just South and West of Clarks River. Kentucky Lake is a close amenity. The quaint town of Benton was founded in 1842 by John Bearden and Francis H. Clayton, but named for Senator Thomas Hart Benton of Missouri. Benton was then incorporated in 1845.
