Vine Grove is a Hardin county town adjacent to the larger town of Radcliff. It was established about 1850 on Otter Creek, slightly to the west of its present location (it was moved about 1865 in anticipation of the coming railroad). The name is said to come from the wild grape vines which were once common in the area. The Vine Grove post office opened in 1856. The population in 1990 was 3,586.
