Because of its location in the midst of Cumberland Mountains, elevations in the county range from 723 to 2220 feet above sea level. 38,000 acres of western Whitley County are preserved within the Daniel Boone National Forest. Cumberland Falls, located in Cumberland Falls State Resort Park, is the site of the largest waterfall in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Both Daniel Boone Forest and Cumberland Falls State Park are operated by the Kentucky State Parks system, also located in the county. Two regionally significant waterways meander through the county, namely the Laurel and Cumberland rivers.
The University of the Cumberlands (formerly known as Cumberland College), located in Williamsburg, is the largest private university in Kentucky, along with Eastern Kentucky University whose branch is located in the Northern portion of the county. These universities provide excellent educational opportunities of higher learning for our community.
A large call center company is looking to open a facility in the Williamsburg area.
