Middletown was occupied by Confederate forces during the 1862 invasion of Kentucky. The year 1910 brought a rail line between Louisville and Shelbyville for commuting, and the area started to quickly evolve from rural community to suburban neighborhood. By 1934, enough of the residents had vehicles that the railway was discontinued.

In 2003, when Louisville combined with Jefferson County, Middletown became classified as part of Louisville. However, none of the incorporated places were affected by the change and still maintain their Middletown identity. Today’s Middletown is an active, evolving city that still holds some of it historical sites and homes. In itself, it’s a beautiful community that provides expressway access to all areas of the city. You’ll find Middletown to be a neighborhood of convenience with plenty of activity all year round.
