Hello, My family is currently in Michigan. With the lake effects in the winter, it is not quite fit for humans or livestock, therefore we are planning to move South. I am an RN, with administrative background, and we will be bringing close to 25 horses. I am looking at property around Louisville and surrounding areas, prefer a smaller town, close to Louisville, or a city like that. Looking for a farm type setting, about 80+ acres, with good schoolsand good soil, how about recommending some towns around the city to check out? I'd like to be no more that 20-40 minutes from a large regional hospital and a college and live where people are real and neighbors are neighborly. Thanks, Tabitha

If you can afford it, your best bet will be either Oldham, Henry, or Trimble Counties.
Lagrange has a small regional Hospital that is always in need for people such as yourself. Also, there are new hospitals being built in far eastern Jeff. County and Southwest Jeff. County.

King, ya just got a rep. Yes, by the end of 2009, there will be one new general hospital (Norton at I-265 & I-71), a new surgical center (Baptist.. I-265 @ Old Henry), and a superior fast developing regional medical center in LaGrange. (Baptist Northeast I-71 at KY 53). There are three male prisions (medium security, psychiatric, youth) and a female prison (Kentucky Womens) nearby. Each of these prisons offer occupational opportunities for medical careers.

It should also be noted that eastern Jefferson County (Jeffersontown-to-Prospect) plus western Shelby and Oldham Counties are easy drives to one of the greatest medical centers in the world. Downtown Louisville is where the first successful artificial heart was implanted, the first successful hand was transplanted, and the uterine cancer vaccine was developed. There is a first class trauma center and a nationally recognized pediatric hospital, too.

Sweetheart don't worry. I used to know a guy back in high school who thought men had ovaries.

I've met a few that probably do.

You would fit well in Oldham County. If it is too expensive, consider Henry where more land can be had for cheap for your horses. Listen to Tomocox on this, as it is his expertise. You will be living in a rural/exurban area, but will be able to make it to most Louisville's big city amenities in less than 40 minutes and major shopping centers in 15.

Hmmmm...I'm not that familiar with the more rural areas outside of Louisville, but I would have thought that 80+ acres of farmland would be difficult to acquire in western Shelby or Oldham counties...at least not at an affordable rate. It seems like developers are buying up property there left and right, and 80+ acres is a lot of land.

I could definitely be mistaken, but wouldn't the OP need to look further out?

Indeed, she would most likely have to go to the next ring of counties, the true exurbia (and I really hate seeing these subdivisions on country roads 40 miles from downtown Louisville). With that in mind, Spencer County, KY and Harrison County, IN would be great options. Come to think of it, the area just east of Corydon, IN is the area closest to to the city where one can obtain a large chunk of land for cheap.
