Louisville's post office
Louisville is a town in Blount County, Tennessee, United States. Its population was 2,001 at the 2000 U.S. census. It is included in the Knoxville, Tennessee Metropolitan Statistical Area.
The town is centered around the junction of State Route 333 (Louisville Road), which connects Louisville with Alcoa and Maryville to the east, and State Route 334, which connects Louisville with Friendsville to the west. The Fort Loudoun Lake impoundment of the Tennessee River comprises Louisville's northern border.
Louisville in 1942
The Louisville area was settled in the early 1800's, and its situation on the Tennessee River helped it grow into a key flatboat and steamboat port. It was incorporated in 1851. The town's namesake is unknown, although some have suggested that its name was influenced by the French King Louis-Philippe, who visited the area in the late 1790's. In 1974 Louisville's downtown was declared a national historic district by the National Register of Historic Places.
