Griffytown is a neighborhood of Louisville, Kentucky located in unincorporated Jefferson County, along Old Harrods Creek Road. Streets within its boundaries include: Bellewood Road, Robert Road, Church Lane, Lincoln Way, Cox Lane, Malcolm Avenue, Plainview Avenue and Booker Road. In 1879, a freed slave named Dan Griffith, an African American, purchased the land he had been living on in the area and the neighborhood appears to be named for him. The neighborhood was redeveloped in the 1970s through urban renewal and remains predominantly African American, although a number of families of other races live there as well.
