Elkhorn City

Trip Planner USA  /  Kentucky  /  Elkhorn City
Elkhorn City is a 4th-class city in Pike County, Kentucky, in the United States. The population was 1,060 at the 2000 census. The city is located in proximity to the Breaks Interstate Park.HistoryElkhorn City was first settled by William Ramey of North Carolina. However, in 1767-1768, Daniel Boone took his first steps in what is now Kentucky near present-day Elkhorn City on a hunting expedition.It was originally named Elkhorn, after an elk's horn that was found on the banks of the nearby creek (also named Elkhorn.) Because there was already a town named "Elk Horn" in Taylor County, the town had to be renamed in order to avoid confusion. On October 16, 1882, the post office was renamed Praise for "Camp Praise-the-Lord", a tent colony that was established by evangelist George O. Barnes for a revival there in August 1881. In 1907, the C&O Railroad established a station in Praise that was named Elkhorn City. Although Elkhorn City was incorporated as a city on November 4, 1912, the local post office was not renamed Elkhorn City until September 1, 1952, after local pressure for a uniform name.
