The city of Louisville, Kentucky is situated in the County of Jefferson and serves as its county seat. Since the year 2003, the borders of the city have been coterminous with the borders of the county. According to the census of 2010, the population of Louisville was roughly 863,600. Louisville is famous for being the site of the Kentucky Derby. This is the 1st of 3 yearly thoroughbred horse races which make up the Triple Crown. During the 19th century, Louisville was an essential internal shipping port.

Louisville is situated in the north-central area of Kentucky, on the Ohio River. It is located at the Falls of the Ohio River and is a very picturesque location. The Louisville metropolitan area includes counties within Southern Indiana and thus, the metropolitan area is often called "Kentuckiana." The border between Kentucky and Indiana is formed by the river. People who reside within Louisville are called a "Louisvillian."

The city boasts various cultural influences from the Mid-west and the South, though it is situated in a southern state. Louisville is usually referred to as the nation's northernmost Southern city or southernmost Northern city.

The history of Louisville extends over a few hundred years and is an area that is greatly influenced by its location and geography. For example, the rapids of the Falls of the Ohio River made a barrier for river travel and thus, settlements grew up at this stopping point caused by this natural formation.

The very first European community near the modern day city of Louisville was Corn Island. Col. George Rogers Clark established the settlement in 1778. He is the man who has been credited as being the founder of Louisville and many landmarks within the area have been named to honor him.

Cargo and shipping industries dominated the early economy of Louisville. Due to Louisville's unique central site, and location near the Ohio Falls, makes it the most ideal place for transferring cargo which is moving onto various cities. Crucial links in rail and water transportation comprise the Louisville and Nashville Railroad and the Louisville and Portland Canal. Even today, the city of Louisville is an integral part of the shipping business since the presence of the Worldport global air-freight hub is located at the Louisville International Airport.

Louisville was additionally home to Brown & Williamson for numerous years. This corporation was the 3rd largest tobacco maker before its merger with R.J. Reynolds during the year 2004. After the merger, the newly formed conglomerate went by the name Reynolds American Company Brown & Williamson. This particular corporation was amongst the subjects of the scandals of the tobacco business in the 1990s. These scandals became the focus of a motion picture called the Insider. It was shot during the year 1999 around the Louisville region. There are 2 major Ford plants as well as a major General Electric appliance factory also located in the vicinity.

Nearly 33% of all bourbon whiskey produced in the nation is produced in the city of Louisville.
