Platted in 1872, Louisville is the oldest settled community in the Nimishillen Township. Initially, inhabitants were attracted by timber that was available in large quantities. Louisville, which was originally settled by Henry Lautzenheiser and Henry Fainot, was named after Lewis, Lautzenheiser's son. Since Ohio already had a place by the same name, the name was changed to Louisville in 1837. It was formally incorporated in 1960.
