Valley Station is a neighborhood within the southwest city limits of Louisville. It was named for its location in the valley between Muldraugh Hill and the Knobs.
The area was first settled in the mid-nineteenth century after an early swamp was drained. The Salt River Turnpike, today's Dixie Highway, ran through the area. Large-scale suburban development occurred in the 1950's and 1960's.
Valley Station is home to a 300-acre historic site called Riverside, the Farnsley-Moremen Landing. Built circa 1837, the house stands as a testament to the important role agriculture along the river played in the development of our country.
