Muldraugh is a city in Hardin and Meade Counties in the U.S. state of Kentucky. It lies on U.S. Route 31W, approximately halfway between Louisville and Elizabethtown. The city's limits are completely encompassed by the Fort Knox Army base. The population was 1,298 at the 2000 census.

The Meade County portion of Muldraugh is part of the Louisville–Jefferson County Metropolitan Statistical Area, while the Hardin County portion is included in the Elizabethtown Metropolitan Statistical Area.


Muldraugh is located just north of Muldraugh Hill. The road coming to the town from the north, now US 31w & 60, is very steep, which is the source of the town's name, since the only way to get up the hill before automobiles was with a "mule drawn" wagon.

Muldraugh is located at 37°56′13″N 85°59′29″W / 37.93694°N 85.99139°W / 37.93694; -85.99139 (37.936975, -85.991414)[1].

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 0.6 square miles (1.5 km²), all land.

Muldraugh has the distinction as being the only one-sided town in the United States. With Ft. Knox territory on one side of US 31W, the town was forced to build on the parallel side.
