About the area:
Jeffersonville, Indiana, is on the Ohio River directly across from Louisville, Kentucky. Known in the 19th century for the steamboats manufactured here, Jeffersonville is still a major inland boat manufacturer now know as Jeff Boat. Remnants of the old days can still be seen at the Howard Steamboat Museum directly across from JeffBoat.
Recent riverfront development with downtown retail and recreational features make Jeffersonville a popular destination. Jeffersonville has several waterfront restaurants, restaurants located in the historic commercial district, offices, retail shops, plus lodging facilities including hotels and bed and breakfasts. Our Waterfront enhancements include the addition of recreation and public space at the beautiful Terrace Lawn incorporated with the historic Overlook.
