Meade County Reviews

1 review
I have grown up in Meade County my entire life. Living in a small town may seem like it is boring or slow, but being in a close knit community where everyone cares. Meade County is slightly secluded with one town, Brandenburg, which harbors the core of the county. However, Meade County is located approximately an hour west of Louisville and 30-45 minutes from Elizabethtown, so we can easily access a larger city if you want to go for somewhere for some extra excitement.
