Inez is a beautiful mountain town. In fact, it was once named Eden, but that had to change because another Kentucky town had already taken the name.
This courthouse was built from 1938 to 1941. It's the fourth one built here. Inez lies only 21 miles east of Paintsville, and is one of the smallest county seats in the state. Population in 1990 was 511, according to the Kentucky Almanac.
