Welcome to Historic Jeffersonville's website, dedicated to informing visitors of our  historic district located on the beautiful Ohio River,  and supporting our  merchants and all the other good folks who have invested in our old town.


Comment from Mayor Tom Galligan:

"During the past 12 years, we’ve worked hard to make downtown Jeffersonville a great place to eat, shop and visit. Certainly, the downtown has benefited from city efforts such as Concerts in the Park and RiverStage, but the real key to our success downtown has been our business owners, who have given of themselves to bring the heart of our city back to life. We welcome you to join us and to enjoy downtown Jeffersonville as much as those of us who live and work here.”


Jeffersonville, Indiana,  is on the Ohio River directly across from Louisville, Kentucky.  Known in the 19th century for the steamboats manufactured here, Jeffersonville is still  a major inland boat manufacturer now know as JeffBoat.  Remnants of the old days can still be seen at the Howard Steamboat Museum directly across from JeffBoat.



Recent riverfront development with downtown retail and recreational features make Jeffersonville a popular destination.  Jeffersonville has several waterfront restaurants, restaurants located in the historic commercial district, offices,  retail shops, plus lodging facilities including hotels and bed and breakfasts.  Our Waterfront enhancements include the addition of recreation and public space at the beautiful Terrace Lawn incorporated with the historic Overlook


Future Plans include opening the Big Four Bridge (pictured above) as a pedestrian walkway connecting Jeffersonville to Downtown Louisville, the historic Quadrangle project has become the new city hall with commercial space, and the transformation of the former Carnegie Library into a historic museum and meeting facility.
