Bullitt County History

Northern Bullitt County

In 1907, the northern part of Bullitt County was fairly scarcely populated, and its roads were not in good condition. By 1997, 90 years later, its population had grown significantly, and its roadways were in much better condition. Now (in 2021) the roads are even better.

To appreciate the changes that took place over that 90 year span, we have displayed below two topographical maps, one from 1907 on the left, and one from 1997 on the right.

You may see an enlarged version of each map by following these links: 1907 | 1997. You may also compare them to a modern Google map on another page.
