Louisville is the biggest city in the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the United States' 29th most populated city. On the Indiana border, Louisville is the historical seat and, since 2003, the formal seat of Jefferson County. Louisville was founded in 1778 by George Rogers Clark and is one of the oldest cities west of the Appalachians. It is named after King Louis XVI of France. The community arose as a portage point because the adjacent Falls of the Ohio were the last major obstacle to river transportation between the upper Ohio River and the Gulf of Mexico. It was the birthplace of the Louisville and Nashville Railroad, which expanded to become a 6,000-mile network spanning 13 states.
