Elizabethtown – Fort Knox Metropolitan Area

Elizabethtown was originally the hub of transportation as the Louisville-Nashville railroad was built here.  This area quickly grew due to being a major transportation stopping point.  Today, Elizabethtown still benefits from the geographic importance it has had over history, and it brings new art, music, and business culture to this thriving area.
