Kentucky Southern College was a Baptist-affiliated college that operated from 1962 to 1969. The school opened initially on the campus of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, moving to its own campus in 1963. The institution was unable to find solid financial ground, however, and in 1969 it closed and the University of Louisville purchased its land and buildings, which now constitute UofL's Shelby Campus.
