To many the town in the heart of Nelson County is known as “Historic Bardstown,” not simply Bardstown. With a host of bed and breakfast lodgings, museums and historic landmarks, Bardstown has become one of the favorite attractions for many throughout the state, nation and world. Today Bardstown is known for landmark buildings and for its historic preservation efforts, as well as annual festivals and street fairs. Bardstown has been deemed a “little jewel” in a reference book for seekers, movers, shakers and retirees, “The 100 Best Small Towns in America.”
