Belmont is a Bullitt county community on KY 251 a few miles south of Shepherdsville. It was established early in the nineteenth century at an iron furnace called Crooked Creek Furnace. The furnace was later bought by a Pennsylvania company and renamed Belmont. The furnace closed in the 1870s. The Crooked Creek Furnace post office opened in 1847, was renamed Belmont in 1854, and later moved to the new Louisville and Nashville Railroad station. The post office closed in 1974.
