Welcome to Perryville,

on October 8, 1862.
While you’re here take the walking tour of our historic homes, enjoy shopping downtown, tour the downtown museum, and visit the Perryville Battlefield State Historic Site. Discover the spirits of Perryville while taking a Haunted Perryville History and Ghost Walk. Located just nine miles west of Danville, Kentucky we are a great place to visit for the day.

Community Book Project
This year, we will publish the second edition of the "Community History of Northwestern Boyle County."
The first edition was printed in 2000, and the new edition of the book will feature information from the first edition, as well as updated information from the last 15 years.
If any Perryville resident has had any new additions to their family, or would like to have a section in the book dedicated to their family, please contact Main Street Perryville. We need photos of historic downtown Perryville, and pictures and information on the people who lived here.
We are excited to get the community involved in this project!
Forms are available in the Main Street Perryville office, located at 216 S. Buell Street, the second floor of the Perryville Community Center. Forms can also be downloaded here.
