KET's Kentucky Time Capsule - SW Jefferson County

Kentucky Time Capsule -(#117) Forgotten People, Forgotten Land

Suburban growth in the 1950s and '60s brought many problems to southwest Jefferson County, where poor zoning, a lack of services, and government neglect created frustration and resentment.


This short segment was filmed in the early 1970's and contains some great footage of Dixie Highway. It also reminds us that nothing changes much with regard to "frustration and resentment".
