Anchorage is a home rule-class city in eastern Jefferson County. The land that is now Anchorage was a part of Isaac Hite’s 1773 land grant, which awarded most of the land in today’s Jefferson County to officers in the Virginia militia, in exchange for their service in the French and Indian War. Early maps refer to the area as “Hite’s Mill,” and it has also been known as “Hobbs Station.” Part of Hite’s original grant now makes up the grounds of Central State Hospital and E. P. “Tom” Sawyer State Park. The nautical name is a bit odd, considering the city is over 12 miles from the Ohio River. The origin is The Anchorage, the estate of riverboat captain and early resident James W. Goslee and was chosen to honor him when the city incorporated in 1878, three years after his death. Tradition says that an anchor hanging inside the rim of a locomotive wheel at the center of town was taken by Goslee from his ship, the Matamora.
Anchorage clearly has a rich history, but it’s also a tourist destination. Celebrate the tradition, history, hospitality, and pride of the world-renowned event that is the Kentucky Derby at – where else – the Kentucky Derby Museum. Do some mega zips, take a mega tram, or do a mega quest at Mega Cavern. Horseracing not your thing, but baseball is? Then you’ll want to visit the Louisville Slugger Museum. Anyone who played little league knows what that bat looks like! For dinner, we suggest heading over to The Village Anchor to expect the unexpected. With things like elk and beef chili, green chili wantons, and a meatloaf burger, we’d say the unexpected is just what you’ll get. Every year, people flock to Anchorage to enjoy everything it has to offer, but unfortunately, so do pests. While these bugs and rodents provide benefits to the eco-system in Anchorage, they can also be a serious problem at homes and businesses. That’s when a professional pest control expert should be called in.
