Anchorage is a city in eastern Jefferson County, Kentucky. Its population at the 2000 census was 2,264.
The city is named after The Anchorage, home of riverboat captain and early resident James W. Goslee, and was chosen to honor him when the city incorporated in 1878, three years after his death. Currently, Papa John's Pizza founder John Schnatter is a resident and owns about 6% of the land in Anchorage, including much of the city center. He has carried out several projects such as restoration of an an interurban rail station, three historic buildings and building a fourth in a similar style in the city's center, with plans to build a bank, an upscale restaurant, and a hiking trail, which opened as the Anchorage Trail in June 2008.
