About Paintsville, Kentucky
Paintsville is a small town nestled deep in the hills of Eastern Kentucky. With a thoroughly rural character, Paintsville offers clean air, fresh water, unmatched opportunities for nature lovers, and plenty of friendly neighbors. It lies along U. S. Route 23, where it occupies the bottomland between Paint Creek and the Levisa Fork of the Big Sandy River. U.S. 460 allows access to the east, leading to I-64 and nearby Lexington. Charleston, West Virginia, also lies about a hundred miles away. Paintsville is the seat of Johnson County and boasts a population of about 3,500 people within its city limi
What to do in Paintsville
Paintsville is chock full of fascinating attractions. The Paintsville Country Club offers some of the best golfing in the Appalachians, with stunning views that simply must be seen to be believed. Paintsville Lake State Park is just beyond the town limits, where it offers fishing, boating, camping, and unforgettable wilderness. Dewey Lake and the Jenny Wiley State Resort Park lie just a little further upstream. The Daniel Boone National Forest and Clifty Wilderness surrounds the county, and the terrain inside Johnson County is similarly rich with forests, creeks, and cliffs. There is also an enormous amount of history in this area. Paintsville was a very important area in the early history of the coal industry, and one of the true architects of the modern coal fields lived in Paintsville and gave his name to several structures around town. Later on, a woman who would someday rise to prominence as the proverbial “Coal Miner’s Daughter” was born and raised near Paintsville. Loretta Lynn used to live up in the hills in a little tiny town called Van Lear, and her home is maintained as a shrine and museum to this day. The Mountain HomePlace, a working farm that uses techniques from the 1850s, is also a major tourist attraction.
Working in Paintsville
Over the years, the town’s center of economic gravity has shifted from Main Street to an area on the northwestern side of town known as Mayo Plaza. Most of service industry occupations in Paintsville are in this plaza, and most of those seeking to pursue small business and entrepreneurship opportunities will look in this area. Ecotourism and nature work is also a growing industry in Paintsville. There are also many opportunities for people with experience in the legal profession, as nearly 10% of the people employed in Paintsville work in the law or related fields. The various educational facilities in the area and the Paul B. Hall Regional Medical Center also employ a number of people in the region.
Paintsville is a very small city, and it only has three neighborhoods. There’s downtown, and down the Levisa Fork to the west there is the neighborhood of Hager Hill. There are approximately five times as many people living in surrounding Johnson County as there are in Paintsville proper, which contributes to the rural character of the area.
Paintsville School District
There are three secondary educational facilities in Paintsville: the Big Sandy Community and Technical College, the University of Pikeville, and the Appalachian Beauty School. All three of these institutions employ instructors, administrators, and maintenance staff, as does the Paintsville Independent School District and the Johnson County School System. The Roman Catholic Bishop of the Diocese of nearby Lexington also operates a private Catholic school called “Our Lady of the Mountains” in the historic Mayo Mansion. This school educates students from kindergarten until the end of eighth grade.

Paintsville is in an extremely rural area. The rugged topography concentrates population in the bottomlands and valleys, and ordinary agriculture is nearly impossible. The low cost of natural gas has caused the coal industry to become almost completely noncompetitive, which has led to the near complete cessation of industrial activity in the entire region. This means that there are extraordinarily low housing prices and the cost of living is minuscule for those who can bring in some form of outside income. The cost of living index for Paintsville is fully 10% below the national average. The median property value has declined to below $100,000, which represents a loss of about 20% in the last decade. This is a fifth less than the median property value for Kentucky and about half of the median property value for the United States. About half the people in the city own their property, while the other half rent.
Outside the city, in Johnson County, the ownership rates are substantially higher than the rental rates. The largest group of houses for sale in Paintsville sell for $60,000 to $70,000. The Hager Hill neighborhood on the east side of town tends to be slightly more expensive than the city center, and real estate costs in the county itself tend to be much lower than those in town. Rooms and houses may be found for rent in Paintsville at a much lower price than some urban dwellers might expect. It is still possible to find one-bedroom apartments for less than $400 a month, which may be attractive to young professionals and other people looking to make the transition to forest life. One thing that Paintsville and Johnson County will provide in profusion is natural beauty and the splendor of nature. There simply are not many places in the world prettier, cleaner, and healthier than Eastern Kentucky. It is hard to find a better place to raise children than this friendly little town, and the extraordinarily low cost of living means that it is possible to not only survive but thrive. Modern transportation and the internet mean that no resident will ever have to go without the benefits of global culture and shopping. Instead, they can enjoy the peace, quiet, and pure security of their beautiful mountain town, sampling in all the pleasures of our international society while maintaining a safe and welcoming environment for their home and their family.
