Elizabethtown, better known to most people as “E-town”, is called home by a very diverse group of people. There was a time when people came to Elizabethtown because of its central location in Kentucky. One of the nation’s main north-south interstate highways, I-65, intersects with Kentucky’s main east-west highways, the Bluegrass Parkway and the Western Kentucky Parkway, in Elizabethtown. Now, people come here because of its central location in the eastern United States. This is, in part, a result of the growth of manufacturing plants that supply automobile manufacturers in the Midwest and South.
Easy access has been an important factor in making Elizabethtown a regional destination where people find jobs, health care services, shopping, restaurants, banks, higher education, and recreation. Many of these people also make the decision to come here to live.
Home buyers consistently find a good inventory of affordable homes for sale in Elizabethtown. There are great neighborhoods for first time home buyers, high end neighborhoods for more established buyers, and excellent options for “empty-nesters” and people looking for low maintenance living in their retirement years.
Drive through a typical neighborhood and you will see an interesting mix of people. You will find families with roots that run generations deep in Hardin County. Next door you will find a military family that has lived in many different countries. Down the street there will be families with international backgrounds who came to Elizabethtown with the multi-national companies that have built plants here. The important thing to know is that people of different races, different cultures, and different experiences are accepted and appreciated in Elizabethtown.
