Okolona is a former census-designated place (CDP) in southern Louisville/Jefferson County. It was first settled by farmers from Pennsylvania and Virginia in the late 18th century. It was called Lone Oak in the late 19th century. However, a town near Paducah, Kentucky already claimed that name for its post office, so the town rearranged the words into Okolona. Farming, as well as logging and charcoal production were important industries around this time. An interurban line was extended to the area in 1905, but residential development did not pick up until General Electric Appliance Park was opened nearby in 1953. Okolona sits at exactly the same elevation as Downtown Louisville despite being 10 miles from the Ohio River, making it one of the city’s most flood prone areas. Several square miles of wetlands had to be drained in the area to make development possible. Fun fact: the O in OPC stands for Okolona!
Okolona clearly has a rich history but it’s also a tourist destination. Do some mega zips, take a mega tram, or do a mega quest at Mega Cavern. Have a laugh at the The Caravan Comedy Club. Try your luck at the Derby City Gaming Hotel, but remember the house always wins. Stay for dinner, though! We suggest treating yourself to a meal at Oliver’s Chop House & Bourbon Bar. Get the chargrilled oysters, the lobster bisque, and the cowboy rib eye. It’s not easy to choose from the sides so order several. But don’t miss the truffle parmesan fries and the gouda mac and cheese. Every year, people flock to Okolona to enjoy everything it has to offer, but unfortunately, so do pests. While these bugs and rodents provide benefits to the eco-system in Okolona, they can also be a serious problem at homes and businesses. That’s when a professional pest control expert should be called in.
