Owingsville is a home rule-class city〔(【引用サイトリンク】title=Summary and Reference Guide to House Bill 331 City Classification Reform )〕 in Bath County, Kentucky, in the United States. The population was 1,530 during the year 2010 U.S. Census. It is the county seat〔(【引用サイトリンク】accessdate=2011-06-07 )〕 and is located roughly at the county's center, at the junction of US 60 and Kentucky 36. It is part of the Mount Sterling micropolitan area.
Land for the town was donated by Richard Menefee, a politician and father of Rep. Richard Hickman Menefee, and by Thomas Dye Owings, owner of a local iron foundry. A local story is that both men wanted to name the town, and the honor was given to Owings after he built his home more quickly. Rennick lists the town as incorporated in 1829, although the state land office gives an approximate date around 1811.
Owingsville was the birthplace of Civil War general John Bell Hood, Indiana governors Henry S. Lane and Claude Matthews, and Tennessee governor Alvin Hawkins.
