Shepherdsville, the seat of Bullitt county, was founded in the late eighteenth century by Adam Shepherd on the Salt River. It was chartered in 1793. The Shepherdsville post office opened in 1806. The population in 2010 was 11,222.
In 1974 Shepherdsville annexed the adjoining community of Salt River. A Groverton post office opened there in 1886, but was quickly renamed Salt River. It closed in 1906.
