Park City, Kentucky

Park City is a western Barren county town just southeast of Mammoth Cave National Park on I-65 and US 31W. It was established by the early nineteenth century at the junction of the Glasgow Road, Bardstown Road, and Louisville and Nashville Pike. Its early name, Three Forks, came from this crossing. It was the site of Bell's Tavern, which operated until 1860. When a spur from the Louisville and Nashville Railroad was opened to Glasgow after 1859 the site became known as Glasgow Junction. It was later named Park City. Park City was incorporated in 1871. The Three Forks post office opened in 1827, was renamed Glasgow Junction in 1863, and became Park City in 1938. The population in 2010 was 537.
