The village of Stamford is by far not the smallest in Harlan County. Established in 1887, Stamford was laid out when the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroads were extended to that point. 

Stamford is known for its lush pasturelands, rolling hills, and breathtaking farms — great for sunrise and sunset photographs.
