Louisville is Kentucky's largest city and county seat of Jefferson County. Since 2003 (15 years ago), the city's borders are coterminous with those of the county due to merger. The city's estimated population as of 2008 (10 years ago) is 713,877 (consolidated; balance total is 557,224), with a population of 1,268,323 in the Louisville metropolitan area. Louisville is most famous as the home of "The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports": the Kentucky Derby, the widely watched first race of the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing.

Louisville is situated in north-central Kentucky on the Kentucky-Indiana border at the only natural obstacle in the Ohio River, the Falls of the Ohio. Because it includes counties in Southern Indiana, the Louisville metropolitan area is regularly referred to as Kentuckiana. A resident of Louisville is referred to as a Louisvillian. Although situated in a Southern state, Louisville is influenced by both Midwestern and Southern culture, and is commonly referred to as either the northernmost Southern city or the southernmost Northern city in the United States.

The settlement that became the City of Louisville was founded in 1778 (240 years ago) by George Rogers Clark and is named after King Louis XVI of France.
