Ive been researching Kentucky for quite awhile to move from Jersey with my husband and 5 kids. On another thread it came out that Bardstown might be the perfect place for me because Im a devout Catholic, conservative, need good schools, low crime, could spend about 250,000 and am looking for a newer home close to the city but not to close. Im also in need of a good place to board a horse and get riding lessons. Also, I need to be by a big medical center perhaps in Louisville or Lexington because I have a child with an illness. So for me, what Ive been told and what I researched, Bardstown seems like a good pick. Cany anyone tell me if you agree or if there are some things I need to know about this town and Nelson county? Anything really good? Anything really bad? Hopefully not too bad...

There is really nothing bad about Bardstown, although it is a fairly small town. For that price you can get a large farm type property in the area with plenty of room for horses. You're about 45 minutes from Louisville, and an hour to the hospitals downtown. You're probably 90 minutes from Lexington. Both cities have research hospitals that can treat almost any illness. Bardstown is a very pretty, historical town. Did I mention it is small? :-) There are a lot of beautiful areas between Bardstown, Shepherdsville, and Louisville that sound like what you're looking for. You might want to be slightly closer to Louisville though.

Oldham county is more desirable. Bardstown is a VERY insular town that does not get many people moving in from other states. Oldham county is higher end with a few more transplants from other areas and has a good deal of rural properties and a bit closer to Louisville.

LadyAlicia: You've posted this in the Louisville forum - the general Kentucky forum might bring more responses, as it's read by people from throughout the state.

Of course, Louisville is fairly close to Bardstown, as noted by other posters...so this forum may work well for you, too.

Sorry Granite, gotta disagree. My inlaws are from B town and I can tell you that there are a lot more people moving there not from Ky. I have a friend from GA that moved there and quite a few have transfered from out of state to the Ford plant have settled there. It is a great town and i have found the locals to b quite friendly.
