Cherokee Triangle - A Thriving Part of the Highlands

Cherokee Triangle is a thriving part of the Highland community that stands out due to its rich heritage. The streets are lined with elder trees, stone fences, stone gateways, old brick drives and alleys. A casual stroll through the neighborhood is like taking a walk back in time and seeing an incredible mix of architectural styles, all historically preserved. The community holds not only elaborate Victorian-style mansions but also excellent examples of Italianate, Tudor Revival, Beaux Arts, Queen Anne and Richardsonian Romanesque homes.

During the Kentucky Derby festivities, the Cherokee neighborhood plays host to a number of influential events including the Cherokee Triangle Art Fair and the renowned Barnstable Brown Derby Party. The annual party is hosted at the Barnstable Brown Mansion located on Spring Drive and is one of Louisville's most elite, ticketed Derby events.

The Cherokee Triangle neighborhood started out as a purchase of 135 acres by James Henning and Joshua Speed in 1869. The partners divided the land into lots and the first home was raised to completion in 1871. Thanks to the dutiful work of the Cherokee Triangle Neighborhood Association, much of the area remains as remarkable as it did when initially built.
