My family of 5 is relocating to the Hardin County area July 26th due to new civilian employment at Ft Knox, and would love anybody to give us advice/heads up/comments on different cities/where to live (we are coming to see rent houses on July 9th)/private schools/recreation/where to actually buy a house/general info about the area -- and anything else anyone can think of.
A list of utility companies and drivers license/registration info would be helpful too!

Thank you so much!

Well, I would start my search for housing in the Elizabethtown area, then look in Glendale and Rineyville.

Two school districts to pick from: Hardin County (large) and City of Elizabethtown (small). Elizabethtown is considered the better district, but the County is good as well, particularly Central Hardin and John Hardin. There are some private schools as well, but I have no knowledge of their quality.

Utility companies: Kentucky Utilities (KU) or Nolin RECC for electric. Water comes from Water Districts 1 or 2, or from Elizabethtown. Elizabethtown has sewers, county is septic tanks.

Drivers license is obtained at the Circuit Court Clerk's Office in the Hardin County Judicial Center. Vehicle registration is at the Hardin CountyClerk's Office (yes, two different places).

Here are some links:

Hope that helps a little, and welcome to Kentucky and Hardin County.

Default E-town or Louisville.

Radcliff and Muldraugh are the closest towns but both are full of transient military, not that that is necessarily a bad thing. Transient anything isn't the best for building relationships and it is filled with all of the trappings of a military town: pawn shops, etc. To the north, the south end of Louisville is about 20 minutes away but is mostly blue collar, once again, not necessarily bad, but not my cup of tea. E-town is 20 minutes south of FK and would be my choice. I am a lifelong resident of the area and for better or worse, the info I've given you will be echoed by most in the community. Good luck with your move and welcome to the area.
