City of Port Fulton remembered

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A town that no longer exists received some recognition Friday morning in Jeffersonville.

The city of Port Fulton used to stand near Vogt Park at Main Street and Park Place.  On Friday Jeffersonville leaders placed a new aluminum marker in the park to show where the old city once stood.

The riverside community was settled in the early 1800's and named in honor of steamboat inventor Robert Fulton.

Jeffersonville Mayor Mike Moore says the marker is an important reminder of Jeffersonville's history:  "Our whole goal is to make Jeffersonville a bicycle-friendly community and as you come off of that Big Four Bridge, we want to invite people to come and see what our town is about. This gives a little piece of that." 

Port Fulton was later taken over by Jeffersonville and integrated into the current city.
