Bullitt County is a county south of Louisville Metro and Jefferson County, located in the far western Bluegrass geographical region of Kentucky known as The Knobs. The county was established in December 1796 upon land taken from Jefferson and Nelson county, followed by an expansion in 1811 with land given by Jefferson County, and a loss of land in the eastern portion of the county in 1824, which was given to help create Spencer County. The county is named after Kentucky’s first lieutenant governor, Alexander Scott Bullitt.

The Frederick Law Olmstead-planned arboretum has over 8,000 documented varieties of trees, shrubs and herbaceous perennials, three small lakes, and 40 miles of trails. Bernheim has a full slate of family friendly events throughout the year, guaranteed to bring a smile to the over-250,000 visitors who turn up annually.
