Bullitt County was named in 1796 and was known for its vast salt mines used in the production of military ammunitions. The Salt River played a major role in the transportation of the salt commodity and the subsequent development of Shepherdsville, the County Seat.
Bullitt County is home to Jim Beam Distillery and nationally recognized Bernheim Forest. The county is located south of Louisville and easily accessed by Interstate 65.
Bullitt County is a top 10 county in Kentucky and has seen significant economic growth in the last 10 years with no end in sight. It includes the major cities of Shepherdsville, Mount Washington, Lebanon Junction, Hillview, Pioneer Village, Fox Chase, and Hunter’s Hollow.
