Jeffersontown, Kentucky was founded on May 3, 1797 and was named “Brunerstown” unofficially. It has grown from originally around 240 residents to the now more than 26,500. It is a thriving area of Louisville with many local businesses, restaurants, a beautiful branch of the Louisville Free Public Library, and wonderful schools.
