Shrewsbury is a declining rural community located within Grayson County, Kentucky, United States. In 1900, it was a settlement in its own right, but today it seems to be less well-defined, and many maps do not show it. It dates to as early as 1833, and was originally called Territory, but later renamed in honor of Judge James W. Shrewsbury.[1] Its first postmaster was Reuben Tingle.[1] He was succeeded by four others, until 1933, when the post office was closed.[1] The town was incorporated as a Kentucky city in 1895, but lost that status in 1901.
