Bullitt County is named after Alexander Scott Bullitt, one of the architects of Kentucky government, and was created on January 1, 1797. It was formed out of parts of Jefferson and Nelson County. In 1811, the current northwestern area of the county was formed from land given by Jefferson County, and when Spencer County was created in 1824, land from the eastern boundary was given to them.

In the late 1700s to the mid 1800s, Bullitt County was the site of thriving Salt and Iron works industries.

Shepherdsville is the county seat.

Online Data

Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data for the free use of all researchers.
We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested in helping this project be as successful as it can be. If you are interested in joining Genealogy Trails, view our Volunteer Page for further information.
(Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required)


We regret that we are unable to perform personal research for folks.
All data we come across will be added to this site. We thank you for visiting and hope you'll come back again to view the updates we make to this site.
