WELCOME TO TAYLORSVILLE
Taylorsville is the county seat of Spencer County, Kentucky. Long-time residents of the region can often trace their ancestry to the middle 1700’s, since many families of current citizens helped to settle the Taylorsville “basin” area.
The region is known for its rural ambiance and wildlife. Spencer County became the home of beautiful Taylorsville Lake in 1983, the year the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers project was completed. During that year Salt River was funneled into the new impoundment and Taylorsville Lake was formed, a body of water that is 3,050 acres at summer pool.
Spencer County and its scenic lake region is bordered by five other Kentucky counties including Jefferson on the west; Shelby on the north; Bullitt on the southwest; Nelson on the south; and Anderson on the east. Louisville, Kentucky, the largest city in Kentucky, is located approximately 40 minutes from downtown Taylorsville, and about 45 minutes from Taylorsville Lake State Park.
The City of Taylorsville is a fourth class city with a City Commission form of Government. The municipality provides police and fire protection along with water and sewer services. The City also supplies water to approximately 98% of the county and serves customers in neighboring counties. Main Street renovations have recently enhanced the downtown appearance and the city has increased significantly in size over the last 10-15 years. The City is home to the Kentucky Gourd Show each May.
