Cities of
Pendleton County


Doughton is in the southwestern part of Pendleton County just north of Locust Grove on KY 22 (Falmouth Road) west of Brushy Fork. 1

Originally, it was called Doudesville [with a store and a post office from 1851 to 1880]; then it changed names to Doudton [which can be located on an old Short Creek precinct map 2 and finally modern-day's Doughton.

Never big but always there. Several name changes along the way. Near the Gran t County line, Doughton remains, as a "Populated Place in Pendleton County, KY". 3
