County Seat: Louisville
Area Code(s): 502
Time Zone: Eastern

Jefferson County is located along the northwestern border of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. With a population of 771,158, it is the most populous county in Kentucky. Jefferson County, originally Jefferson County, Virginia, was established by the Virginia General Assembly in June 1780, when it abolished and partitioned Kentucky County, Virginia into three counties; Fayette, Jefferson and Lincoln. Named for Thomas Jefferson, who was governor of Virginia at the time, it is one of Kentucky's nine original counties. Jefferson County is bordered by nine counties, as follows: Bullitt County; Shelby County; Oldham County; Spencer County; Hardin County; Clark County, Indiana; Harrison County, Indiana; and Floyd County, Indiana. In 2013, a city-county merger of the city of Louisville with the Jefferson County government created the Louisville Metro government. The existing cities of Jefferson County were assumed into the Louisville Metro government; however none of the incorporated places dissolved in the process. The city of Louisville is the county seat, and is the largest city in Kentucky. It was the founding city of the Louisville and Nashville Railroad, which grew into a 6,000 mile system across 13 states. Louisville's strategic location makes it a practical location for the transfer of cargo along its route to other destinations. The city is also a major center of the American whiskey industry, with about one-third of all U.S. bourbon coming from Louisville.
