Trip Planner USA  /  Kentucky  /  Bloomfield
Bloomfield is a 5th-class city in Nelson County, Kentucky, in the United States. The population was 838 during the 2010 U.S. census.HistoryThe community on the east fork of Simpson Creek originally grew up on sites purchased from Leven Powell's 2000acre land grant, which he received from the state of Virginia in 1779 and surveyed in 1781. The community on the east bank of the creek was known as Middlesburg when its first post office opened in 1803; the west bank was known as Gandertown from its sport of "ganderpulling". Dr. John Bemiss of Rochester, New York, had settled in the area in 1799; in 1817, he laid out the town and renamed it Bloomfield, supposedly after his wife's maiden name (Bloomer) and his daughter's married name (Merrifield). The post office adopted this name the next year, but, according to the state's Land Office, the town was still formally incorporated under the name Middlesburg in 1819.Bloomfield's economy has always been agriculturally based, but there was a flour mill and a tobacco auction house in the 19th century. The public library was established in 1916 by the local Woman's Club.GeographyBloomfield is located at on the east fork of Simpson Creek. It is on U.S. 62 and Ky. 55 and 48, 9mi northeast of Bardstown. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 1.3sqmi, of which 1.3sqmi is land and 0.78% is water.
