Crestwood, Kentucky - A Community with a Heart in Nature

Looking at modern Crestwood, Kentucky now, it is hard to visualize the dirt roads and freshly-laid railroad track that existed back in 1857. The community was known as Beard's Station at that time due to the first actual property owner, Mr. Joe Beard. He purchased 263 acres which eventually became part of the Waldeck Farm on KY 22. He then purchased an additional 2 acres in 1851 and the first L&N railroad station in the area was built there in 1881. The convenience of train travel started attracting more residents and that got the developmental ball rolling down the tracks.
