Who We Are
RURAL LIFE & SMALL TOWN CHARM
Powell County (population 12,269) is home to two incorporated cities: “Stanton & Clay City”. Small town charm abounds in these two areas, while rural life throughout the remainder of the county offers gently rolling hills in a picturesque landscape that creates unparalleled living opportunities.
Stanton(population 2,600) and Clay City (population 1,098) offer updated city parks, quaint shopping opportunities and affordable housing that larger cities can’t compete with.
An excellent school system, Powell County offers an elementary school in Stanton, Clay City and Bowen (a rural village), as well as a middle school and high school. Children in Powell County are fortunate to have access to quality educational opportunities in a small town setting.
The Red River Historical Museum located in Clay City offers both visitors and residents alike a resource to look back at the rich history Powell County has had since its inception.
