Glenview is a city in northeastern Jefferson County, Kentucky, United States, along the Ohio River. The population was 558 at the 2000 census, and was estimated to have increased to 718 by the 2006 census estimate.
Glenview has the second-highest per capita income of any place in Kentucky and the 74th highest of any place in the United States. Its boundaries are roughly Lime Kiln Lane to the east, River Road to the north, Brittany Woods Circle to the south, and the Knights of Columbus property on River Road to the West. The city is known for its old estate homes on high bluffs overlooking the Ohio River.
Much of the land was originally owned by Virginian James Smalley Bate, and was purchased in 1868 by meat packer James C. McFerran. McFerran opened horse farm called Glen View. After his death in 1885, John E. Green acquired the farm and renamed it Glenview Stock Farm.
In the late 19th century, wealthy families from Louisville began moving east, to build summer homes (such as in Anchorage) and eventually full-time residences. Early residents of Glenview cooperated with other communities to open the Louisville, Harrods Creek and Westport Railroad in 1877, a commuter rail line, which would be in use until it was abandoned in the 1950s. Some of Louisville's most influential families, such as the Binghams, the Ballards and the Belknaps, moved into the area after the opening of the railroad.
Louisville attempted to annex Glenview in 1983, which led to residents incorporating as a 6th class city. Many of the houses are part of the Glenview Historic District, which is on the National Register of Historic Places.
