History: Upton is a southeastern Hardin County community on I-65, US 31W, and KY 224 that partially lies in LaRue County. The area was settled by the middle of the nineteenth century and a Leesville Post Office, named for the postmaster, Silas Lee; opened about two miles south in Hart county in 1841. It was renamed Uptonville and moved to its present location in 1856 by George Washington Upton. The station on the Louisville & Nashville Railroad was called Upton’s. The post office was renamed in 1892.
