Owensboro is a city in Daviess County, Kentucky, in the United States. Owensboro is the third largest city in Kentucky. It is the county seat of Daviess County6 and is named for Colonel Abraham Owen. It is located on U.S. Highway 60 about 30 miles southeast of Evansville, Indiana. It is the principal city of the Owensboro, Kentucky Metropolitan Statistical Area. According to 2005 estimates, the city had a total population of 55,459 and a metropolitan population of 111,599.

Owensboro was first settled in the 1790s by frontiersman William "Bill" Smeathers. The settlement was called Yellow Banks, an allusion to the color of the banks of the Ohio River. In 1817, Yellow Banks was incorporated as a city under the name Owensborough, named after Colonel Abraham Owen (who is also the namesake of Owen County, Kentucky). In 1893, the name was shortened to its present spelling of Owensboro.

Frederick Ames came to Owensboro from Washington, Pennsylvania in 1887. He started the Carriage Woodstock Company to repair horse-drawn carriages, but in 1910 began to manufacture a line of automobiles under the Ames brand name. Ames hired industrialist Vincent Bendix in 1912, and the company became the Ames Motor Car Company. Despite being called the "best $1500" car by a Texas car dealer, production ceased in 1915. The company instead began manufacturing replacement bodies for the Ford Model T. In 1922, the company again remade itself, manufacturing furniture under the name Ames Corporation. The company finally sold out to Whitehall Furniture in 1970.[1]

On August 14, 1936, downtown Owensboro became the site of the last public hanging in the United States. Rainey Bethea was executed for the rape of 70-year-old Lischa Edwards, who was also murdered. He had confessed to her strangling but the Commonwealth indicted him only on the rape charge since that was the only capital crime for which the penalty was hanging.

In 1937, Pope Pius XI established the Roman Catholic diocese of Owensboro which spans approximately the western third of the state. It includes thirty-two counties and covers approximately 12,500 square miles[2].

In 1961, a family of vacuum tubes called the Compactron was introduced by engineers from the General Electric plant in Owensboro.
