MEADE COUNTY NEIGHBORHOODS

Brandenburg
Located along the Ohio River about 45 miles southwest of Louisville is Brandenburg, the county seat of Meade County. Brandenburg is a small town of around 2,100 people but has a lively and festive vibe whose residents are proud of their community and its history. The historic downtown area gives a glimpse of the past, while offering the amenities of the present.

Flaherty 
It's rural countryside plus its close proximity to Fort Knox is what typically draws people to the community of Flaherty. Homeowners in the area get more bang for their buck with larger, lower-priced properties available. 

Doe Valley
East of Brandenburg, the Doe Valley subdivision consists of dozens of homes and condos surrounding the sparkling 360-acre Doe Valley Lake. The gated community features a 18-hole public golf course, swimming pool, tennis courts, a marina, lakefront properties and more. Residents of Doe Valley enjoy the vacation-like lifestyle all year round, but with all of the community's amenities, builders and sellers typically command higher prices.

Fort Knox
Fort Knox is a U.S. Army base that spans across Hardin and Meade counties. The growth that Fort Knox has recently seen as more and more newcomers have had their jobs move to the military base has had a positive impact on Meade County. With new residents comes new business and it gives the area's surrounding Fort Knox a welcoming manner. Even if transferred somewhere else, many people who were stationed at Fort Knox at some point in their careers end up choosing Meade County as their place of retirement.
