Bullitt County History

Bullitt County 1950 Census - E.D. #1

Images of the 1950 census pages are available on the official government website, and have been "read" via OCR software, making it possible to locate people within limits. While the software has done a pretty good job, some handwriting has created issues, making it difficult to always find the person you seek.

For this reason we have completed a limited transcription including the names and ages of the occupants on the pages for Bullitt County. Below you will find our efforts for Enumeration District 1 (Shepherdsville).

Shepherdsville was essentially divided north (District 1) and south (District 2) with the center of Third Street as the primary dividing line as far west as Abbott Street. Then Abbott was the dividing line north to Fourth Street (Highway 44W) with all of the area from the west side of Abbott and south side of Fourth Street as part of District 2. The map shown here is taken from a 1949 topographical map. Some streets, including Plum Street, were omitted from this map.

The images are available on the census page beginning here. If you find an error in our transcription below, please use the "Contact Us" link at the top of this page to share that information with us.
