United States House of Representatives, Kentucky District 7 was a district of the United States Congress in Kentucky.

It was eliminated in 1993 when reapportionment reduced Kentucky's House representation from seven seats to six. The eastern Kentucky region formerly in the 7th District is now largely in the 5th District. The last Congressman to represent the 7th District was Carl C. Perkins, who succeeded his father, Carl D. Perkins.
