The population was 2,484 during the 2010 U.S. Census.Early HistorySimpsonville was first laid out in 1816 and was incorporated in 1833. It was named in honor Captain John Simpson; a native Virginian who represented Shelby County in the Kentucky House of Representatives and died in the War of 1812. By 1825 it had become a stage coach town; one of the largest between Shelbyville and Louisville. The Midland trail stagecoach would either swap out or rest their horses and travelers could stay at the Old Stone Inn. The second oldest stone building in the county which is still standing today.For most of its history Simpsonville was an agrarian community which dairy, tobacco, cattle, and hogs being the primary source of income for most residents. This was due to its remarkably fertile soil based on limestone and red clay. Later on it would be the genesis for the town's moniker 'American Saddlebred Horse Capital of the World'.
