Situated along the Ohio River in the western part of the state, Henderson is part of Henderson County, Kentucky. The settlement that was to become Henderson began in a small, block-wide strip of land above the Ohio River, currently the site of Audubon Mill Park, south of the city's riverfront boat dock. A frontier village on this site was known as Red Banks, named for its reddish clay soil. The city is named for Colonel Richard Henderson, an early investor.
