By phone

Most telephone numbers in Elizabethtown consist of +1 270 plus a seven-digit number, but the entire 270 area is now served by an overlay complex of two area codes, with +1 364 as the second. A local or in-state telephone call now requires all 10 digits of the local number be dialed (omitting just the leading +1 from a local landline call).

Signage on many established businesses may still display the original seven-digit numbers; dial 270 before these if no area code is indicated.

Note that nearby Fort Knox is in area code 502, not 270/364. However, Radcliff, which borders directly on both Elizabethtown and Fort Knox, is in 270/364.
