Fort Knox is on a short list of names like Muhammad Ali, Colonel Sanders, and the Kentucky Derby that people all over the world associate with Kentucky. The story of Fort Knox includes the Gold Depository, General Patton, the Armor School, and now the Human Resources Command. It is a great story of one of the world’s iconic military bases.
There was a time when Fort Knox real estate was geared toward soldiers who were going to be here for a relatively short time. That changed dramatically in 2010 when the Base Realignment and Closure process (BRAC) brought HRC to Fort Knox. The population at Fort Knox changed from primarily young trainees, to career military and civil service workers. Now, Fort Knox is more than a short term tour of duty. It is a place where people put down roots in a place they can call home.
People who move to Fort Knox have a wide range of housing options. And people make all kinds of choices. There are homes with acreage, homes in new subdivisions, homes in quaint communities, and homes in upscale neighborhoods. You can find all of these options within a half hour drive of Fort Knox.
The best word to describe living in the communities around Fort Knox is “easy”. It’s easy to get to and from work. It’s easy driving without the hassle of big city traffic. And it’s easy getting to Louisville, knowing that you are only 30-45 minutes away from the amenities of a metropolitan area.
