Wilmore is located in the center of Jessamine County and considered to be the "Garden Area" of Central Kentucky with lush vegetation, creeks and lots of Kentucky River frontage.

Wilmore is a turn-of-the-century village located on the Norfolk Southern Railroad Line near historic High Bridge. The town was primarily influenced by Bishop Asbury who established Bethel Academy in 1790 (now Asbury College) in the wilderness of pioneer Kentucky.

The quaint downtown features architecture from the 1890s to the colonial revival of Asbury College and Asbury Theological Seminary.

The magnificant High Bridge railroad structure which was once considered an engineering marvel of its time and featured by the Smithsonian Institute. The landmark, built in 1877, spans the Kentucky River was once the highest railroad trestle in the world.
