Cities of
Pendleton County


"Browningsville was along Little Willow Creek which came from Bracken County into Pendleton County. There were homes along the creek as early as 1818, but the village itself began in the 1840's with the general store of Henry Browning… By 1860, Browningsville was a busy neighborhood… The Willow Creek Baptist Church was established in 1818. Willow Creek Baptist Church is now the Willow Baptist Church, Bracken County, Ky. " 1 Eventually, Browningsville 'shook off' the small Pendleton County end along Little Willow Creek and was totally in Bracken County where it is now known as a 'gone but not forgotten city'. 2
