Carlisle County, the 119th in order of formation, lies in the Jackson Purchase region of far western Kentucky. Bounded by Ballard, Graves and Hickman counties and by the Mississippi river, it has an area of 192 square miles.
The area, originally Chickasaw tribal lands acquired by Isaac Shelby and Andrew Jackson in 1818, was part of Hickman County from 1821 to 1842, when it was included in the creation of Ballard county. Carlisle county was created on May 3, 1886. The county was named in honor of John Griffin Carlisle, who was prominent in state and national public affairs and Speaker of the United States House of Representatives from 1883 – 1889. Its county seat is Bardwell, Kentucky.
