Overview of Jeffersonville

Located directly across the roaring Ohio River from Louisville, Kentucky, many view the city of Jeffersonville as an entryway to the Midwestern states. Simply called "Jeff" by locals, this city is one of the most charming port cities in the Kentuckiana region.

Apparently the word is out on how appealing the city is, because Jeffersonville saw a 64.3 percent population increase from 2000 to 2010, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. With a city growing at such an explosive rate, finding Jeffersonville apartments for rent should be a cinch.

Living in Jeffersonville, IN

The banks of the Ohio have always been a breeding ground for port cities. Bringing in commerce and trade to the Midwest, carrying goods down these rivers brought Jeffersonville its humble beginnings. The first land grants for homes were recorded as early as 1802, and by 1817, Jeffersonville was already a small city in its own right with 130 houses. When railroads connected the north to the south, Jeffersonville began establish itself as a commercial hub by building grand hotels and bridges across the river.

In the 19th century, Jeffersonville prided itself on its pipe-fitting industry and steamboat production. Even today, Jeff is still known as a major inland boat manufacturer. The riverfront has always been at the heart of the city's success, so it is no surprise that the recent development of downtown retail and recreational facilities along the banks of the Ohio have become extremely popular. With a Big Four Bridge pedestrian walkway project that will connect Louisville and Jeffersonville already in the works, a new influx of people will soon see the beauty of this historic hub.

Jeffersonville Work and Study

Ottawa University's Jeffersonville campus has an educational program that was started in 1865 and provides stellar adult education. With traditional and online classroom settings, busy adults are able to earn bachelor's and master's degrees. Other trade schools in the area include the Mid-America College of Funeral Service and Ideal Beauty Academy for those seeking out two- and four-year degrees.

Whether you are commuting to Louisville or staying on the Indiana side for work and school, finding Jeffersonville apartments should be an affordable and simple option for anyone looking to live in the Ohio Valley area. Major employers in Clark County include Clark Memorial Hospital and the AFGE Local 1438, as well as boating manufacturers like Jeffboat LLC, according to the Indiana Department of Workforce Development.

Rentals in Jeffersonville, IN and Cost of Living

In a community that is so close to everything that Kentuckiana has to offer, it makes sense that the city is seeing such impressive growth in recent decades.

Jeffersonville Attractions and Special Events

To step back into the Victorian era, many history buffs like to visit the Howard Steamboat Museum. Here, residents and visitors alike can explore the industry that put Jeffersonville on the map. It tells the story of the Howard family, who brought the industry to the area, and you can learn the family saga and see relics from an important chapter in America's history.
