Lewisburg, or Lewisburgh, was a Muhlenberg county town on the Green River outside of Central City and about seven miles north of Greenville. It was established as a river landing before 1800 by Lewis Kincheloe and was known as Lewisburg or Kincheloe's Ferry or Kincheloe's Bluff. The town was laid out in 1817. It was superseded by South Carrollton by 1850 and was mostly abandoned. The ferry continued to operate into the twentieth century.
Lewisburg was incorporated in 1825, but was later dissolved.
The Lewisburg or Lewisburgh post office opened in 1805 and moved to nearby South Carrollton in 1848.
