Geography

Asphalt is located west of Brownsville and it is served by Kentucky Route 655 (Segal Road) off of KY 70. It is 2.5 miles (4.0 km) miles southwest of KY 655's intersection with State Highway 70 at Windyville.

Churches

Asphalt is the home to the Asphalt Church of Christ (formerly New Liberty Church), one of Edmonson County's several places of worship. Their Gospel Meetings, or revivals, are usually held in mid-June.

In the week of June 7–10, 2015, the Asphalt Church celebrated their 140th anniversary, meaning that the church was believed to be established in 1875. According to the previous week's edition of the Edmonson News and the congregational members of the church, the church at its original location was burned down sometime in 1951 due to a faulty wiring. The church received its current name after being rebuilt at its current location in 1952. The church originally stood at the current location of the New Liberty Cemetery. In spite of the church's name change, Edmonson County road maps dating from the 1940s to 1977 still list it as the New Liberty Church.

Education

Students in Asphalt attend Edmonson County Schools, including the Edmonson County High School, in Brownsville. At one time Asphalt was served by their own school until the 1959-60 merger of all of Edmonson County's high schools in other communities.

Postal service

Asphalt does not currently have a post office, so 42210, Brownsville's zip code is used. The Asphalt post office originally operated until its 1958 closing.
