The History of Louisville, KY
Louisville, KY was founded in 1778 by George Rogers Clark and named after King Louis XVI of France. Louisville is one of a few cities in the area that owes its beginnings and growth to the “falls of the Ohio River”. These natural rapids on the Ohio River created a barrier for traffic and boats navigating the river in the late 1800’s. Because merchants were forced to stop and adjust their loads or ask for help, Louisville became a logical port city on the river. Louisville is known as the home of Kentucky Fried Chicken as well as the Kentucky Derby. It is home to the University of Louisville, and three of Kentucky’s six Fortune 500 Companies. It is the largest city in the state, and the 29th most populous city in the United States.
