Jeffersonville is located in Clark County along the Ohio River in southeastern Indiana. Locals often refer to the city as simply, "Jeff." It is directly across the Ohio River to the north of Louisville, Kentucky along I-65. As of the 2000 census, the population of Jeffersonville was 30,479. The city has a lot of historical significance. In 1786 Fort Finney was situated where the Kennedy Bridge is today, and a settlement grew around the fort. In 1802 local residents used a grid pattern designed by Thomas Jefferson for the formation of a city, and Indiana Territorial Governor William Henry Harrison decided to name the new city after Jefferson. Jeffersonville would be the only city ever designed by Jefferson. The American Civil War increased the importance of Jeffersonville, as it was one of the principal gateways to the South, being directly across from Louisville. It was served by three railroads from the north and had the waterway of the Ohio River. Naturally, this influenced its selection as one of the principal bases for supplies and troops for the Union Army. Today, Jeffersonville has a mix of restaurants and shops along the river front and downtown. The city is scattered with smaller bars, restaurants and fast food chains in areas such as the Quadrangle in which the Town Hall is now located. The city of Jeffersonville is most known for its being the birthplace of the national pizza chain Papa Johns Pizza, and the restaurant chain, Rally's. The second largest clock in the world, the Colgate Clock, is also located here.
