Jobs in Henderson, Kentucky, United States

Henderson city is located along the Ohio River in Henderson County and is part of the Evansville Metropolitan area. It was incorporated on January 21, 1840, and is named after a 18th Century land speculator, Richard Henderson.

Its proximity to the cities of Evansville and Louisville gives it better access to local amenities and other neighboring cities. Henderson exudes the charm of a historic river town with its busy downtown and historic houses overlooking the river and a spruced up riverfront.

Attractions and Outdoor Activities

Henderson comes with its share of historical attractions and exciting outdoor activities for both its residents and visitors. The Audubon State Park and museum relieves the art by the International wildlife artist, James Audubon. Other museums include Reitz Home Museum and Evansville Museum of Arts. The Atkinson Park Riverwalk offers visitors scenic views of Ohio River and the entire riverfront.

Other fun packed parks include the Sunset Park and Audubon Mill Park. Visitors can also participate in the thrilling live races at the Ellis Park Race Course.

Henderson holds with esteem the diverse work of its artists. There are public sculptures by a sculptor named Raymond Graf paraded in the downtown area. Other works are displayed in the city’s annual art events, galleries, and museums.

There are captivating all year round festivals such as the kite festival, W. C. Handy Blues Festival, Bluegrass in the Park and Folklife Festival, and Barbecue festival.

Economy and Quality of Life

Data USA states that Henderson has a population of 28,889 residents. The median household income is $34, 879 while the median property value is $ 98,900. The city has a poverty rate of 23.3% with a job decline growth of -2.02%.

Residents enjoy a low cost of living, good healthcare, and low crime rates. The odds of this city, however, include slow economic growth and the summer heat and humidity. Major industries in this city include aluminum production, die making, automotive and appliances production, and food processing.

The city is also one among the three major producers of corn and soybean in the Kentucky region. As part of the Evansville metropolitan area, Henderson suffers isolation from economic development. This is because Evansville is not directly served by a north-south or east-west interstate.  However, all is not lost in regard to the city’s economic growth.

Rigorous strategic planning by its government in conjunction with efforts by The Kentucky Cabinet for Economic development persistently explore ways to create new jobs and lure investors into the city. Some top employers in this city include Gibbs Die Casting Corp, Audubon Metals LLC, Brenntag Mid-South Inc, Dana Corporation and Azteca Milling LP.
