The book begins with a short historical sketch to give readers a since of the county in that era. The directory information for Jefferson County is followed by a small listing of persons from Bullitt, Shelby counties in Kentucky and New Albany and Jeffersonville, Indiana. These people of surrounding areas were included due to information given through sources from Jefferson County. The directory information includes business, church, school and library, newspaper, bank, Militia Company, Masonic lodge, listings as well as streets, settlements and towns. Revolutionary War veterans known to be living in Jefferson County at the time are also included.

Additional valuable information in this volume includes further notes of interest and a partial cemetery listing. The author made an extensive search for the graves of all individuals listed in this directory. The cemetery listing includes tombstone inscriptions for all persons that were found from 1820, as well as relations to these people.
