Overall, Middletown is fairly average. With few areas for "dangerous individuals" to convene and a readily available police force, I can say that I feel safe here. Given a lack of overall "nightlife" Middletown can be seen as fairly kid friendly as well. Middletown is a part of Jefferson County Public schools, so the schooling is what you want it to be. For me, Middletown is a great place to live!

Middletown was first chartered as a city in 1797 by the Jefferson County Court. The land was originally owned by veterans of the Revolutionary War. The name Middletown is generally thought to be derived from either its equidistant position between Louisville and Shelbyville or perhaps between the Ohio River towns of Westport and Shippingport. Shippingport was located just west of Louisville and below the falls of the Ohio River. (Shippingport is now an island, due to the McAlpine Locks.) Goods moving west were shipped on the Ohio to Westport, where they were unloaded onto oxcarts before being hauled to Shippingport for reloading onto flatboats heading downstream. Middletown was the overnight stopping point for these goods. Two early inns were the Middle-Town Inn and the Wetherby House... Read more at http://homeslouisvilleky.com/middletown-ky/
It’s a pretty part of town because there’s new developments. Middletown used to be a grassy part of town, it’s been remodeled and everything is basically new. The downside it’s isolated because it’s far from everything in the city and because it’s new development you have a lot of brand new habitants rather than long time existing habitants.

Where I live is very pretty, it is a neighborhood that you would think would be great to live in, but it is not safe. There’s always new people in the homes, never the same cars and my house was attempted to be forced into.
