It is my privilege to extend the warmest of welcomes as you explore this website and learn more about the city that we call home.
With a population of approximately 800 people, Campbellsburg, Kentucky is a home rule class city located in Henry County, Kentucky. This small, close knit community is located just off of I-71 between Louisville, Kentucky and Cincinnati, Ohio.
The city was incorporated by the state legislature in 1840 as “Chiltonsville”, in honor of its trustee Charles J. Chilton, but the name was changed within three weeks to “Campbellsburg” for another local family. Later the same year, the local post office at Benevola was renamed “Campbellsburg” as well. The arrival of the Louisville, Cincinnati and Lexington Railroad in 1869 led to a division of the town into “Old” and “New Campbellsburg”. The later was separately incorporated in 1876 but eventually expanded until the two polities merged into the present town.
Campbellsburg’s central business district was rebuilt after much of it was destroyed by a tornado on April 1, 1974.
The elected officials and employees of the city are always ready to provide assistance and are committed to making Campbellsburg a great place to live. There are many opportunities for you to interact with local government and to participate in civic activities and organizations. We encourage you to become involved in all aspects of the community.
