In March, Gov. Matt Bevin announced that GossHall Systems will locate its corporate headquarters in Elizabethtown. The provider of “last-mile delivery” services has operations in Louisville and Lexington, and is investing $775,000 in the construction of a 10,000-s.f. corporate office in Hardin County, with the expectation of creating 20 jobs. “GossHall Systems’ plans for a new corporate headquarters in Elizabethtown speaks to the city’s incredible quality of place and skilled workforce,” newly elected Mayor Jeff Gregory said in a press release. The Elizabethtown-Hardin County Industrial Foundation assisted in the site selection process.
Elizabethtown has two new hotels off I-65. The Hilton Garden Inn opened last fall on Commerce Drive and SpringHill Suites by Marriott opened in March on Executive Drive. Visitors and locals alike can take in a history museum, the Hardin County Veterans Tribute and outdoor activities at Freeman Lake and nature parks.
