Shrewsbury, Kentucky

Shrewsbury is a declining rural unincorporated community located within Grayson County, Kentucky, United States. In 1900, it was a settlement in its own right,[1] but today it seems to be less well-defined, and many maps do not show it. It dates to as early as 1833, and was originally called Territory,[2] but later renamed in honor of Judge James W. Shrewsbury.[2] Its first postmaster was Reuben Tingle.[2] He was succeeded by four others, until 1933, when the post office was closed.[2] The town was incorporated as a Kentucky city in 1895, but lost that status in 1901.
