In 1868, a town was founded by William Scott and Colonel E. G. Sebree of Trenton, Kentucky. The L & N Railroad was begun in 1850 but was not completed until after the Civil War. The railroad divided the town nearly in half.

On the eastern side was the depot which was furnished with both a day and night operator. Telephone service was added to the town in 1895. Several tobacco factories made their home in Sebree also.

At one time, Sebree was home to some 40 businesses, hotels, shops and stores. The first church was erected in 1870 - Christian denomination. It was quickly followed by a Methodist, Catholic and Baptist churches.

The town was also home to Sebree Springs, a summer resort and park operated by G.L. Dial.

The historic Sebree Deposit Bank (c.1890) is still in operation with a beautifully refurbished interior including a marble floor. The bank is a vital part of Sebree and incorporates beauty, history and business all in one package. Another historic site in the area is the McMullin-Warren House (c. early 1900s - Queen Anne architecture).

As one leaves Sebree on Hwy 132 South you will pass by the Wildwood Golf Course and Conference Center.
