Jeffersontown, Kentucky is the second largest city in Jefferson County and home to the Bluegrass Industrial Park, the third largest employer in the State. Originally a close knit community of dirt roads and mom and pop shops, Jeffersontown was established in the mid 1700’s and was filled with stonecutters, saddlers, and craftsmen. In the late 1800’s the first road was put down in the City and in 1904 the Electric Railway, or Interurban, established a route from Jeffersontown to Louisville’s Public Square, creating progress and development opportunities to the neighborhood. The 1950’s brought tremendous growth to the Jeffersontown community. With the opening of General Electric’s Appliance Park and the new interchange at I-64, residents were moving to the Jeffersontown area in large quantities. Jeffersontown is still growing today, with a variety of new developments to please any homebuyer.
Just like in it’s early years, Jeffersontown remains a tight-knit community. The annual Gaslight Festival began in 1969 and has since become the fifth largest festival in the area. A balloon glow, 5k run, parade, live entertainment, and over 140 booths are all part of the festival.
