The settlement (initially named Red Banks) was founded in the 18th-century and incorporated in 1840. By mid-19th-century, the county became a major dark tobacco producer (reportedly world's largest) exporting mainly to Great Britain. The industry was represented by large warehouses and stemmeries (buildings where tobacco leaves were stripped). In early-20th-century, Henderson KY had world's largest number of millionaires per capita. Town's largest tobacco plant was the Soaper Tobacco Warehouse (Pennell Street) which closed in 1984. Current-day town's economy is based on industries like agriculture (corn and soybean production), coal and aluminum production, car- and appliance parts, plastic injection molding, food processing, recycled materials processing.

As cruise port, Henderson KY is included in the schedule of USA's largest river cruise company - ACL-American Cruise Lines.
