Things to do: shopping
Campbellsville is in Taylor County, Kentucky, United States. The population within city limits was 10,604 at the 2010 U.S. census. It is the seat of its county,. Campbellsville is the home of Campbellsville University and borders Green River Lake. Campbellsville is twinned with Buncrana in County Donegal, Ireland.HistoryThe city was founded in 1817 and laid out by Andrew Campbell, who had moved there from Augusta County, Virginia. Campbell owned a gristmill and a tavern and began selling lots in Campbellsville in 1814. Campbellsville became the county seat when Taylor County was separated from Green County in 1848. The city agreed to sell the public square to the county for one dollar so a courthouse could be built there.The first courthouse was burned by Confederate cavalry in 1864 because the Union Army was using it for barracks. A replacement courthouse was built on the same site after the war. A third courthouse in a modern design was built in 1965 on a property adjoining the "old courthouse". A portion of the old courthouse still stands near the current (3rd) courthouse. Construction began in 2008 on a new Justice Center because of the demand for a more modern courthouse and for an "official" county jail to save on transport of inmates to neighboring Lebanon in Marion County.
