Lotus is a Bullitt county community on KY 245 a few miles south of Shepherdsville. A Lotus post office opened at the station on what was then the Bardstown Branch of the Louisville and Nashville Railroad in 1902. It closed in 1919.

Settlement in the area was such that a Cane Spring post office opened nearby in Nelson county 1828. It closed in 1830, reopened in 1832, and moved a short distance into Bullitt county. With the coming of the Louisville and Bardstown Railroad in 1860 it became Cane Spring Depot. The post office moved away from the railroad in 1876 and became Cane Spring again in 1882. It closed in 1912.
