Crescent Hill Neighborhood Louisville, KY

The Crescent Hill Neighborhood bubbles with creativity and tradition, reflecting its Frankfort Avenue shopping and dining district -- and its walkable neighborhoods.  

The Crescent Hill area of Louisville is formally bounded by Brownsboro Road on the north, Lexington Road on the south, Ewing Avenue on the west, and Cannons Lane/Fenley Avenue on the east. Frankfort Avenue cuts through the middle.

Mention “Crescent Hill” to most Louisvillians and they’ll think of Frankfort Avenue shops, the large and distinctive Louisville Water Company filtration plant and reservoir, and the frequent trains that run parallel to Frankfort Ave. 

They may also think of the Frankfort Avenue Trolley Hop, where, on the last Friday of the month, Frankfort Avenue adopts a party atmosphere with late shopping and dining hours and free trolley rides for visitors’ convenience.

Crescent Hill is also home to a few religious institutions. The St. Joseph’s Children’s Home is a 160-year old organization still offering services for children on its park-like campus on Frankfort Avenue. Every summer the home hosts a large and extremely popular fundraising festival on its grounds.

On the eastern side of Crescent Hill is the Ursuline Motherhouse and campus. It is also home to the highly regarded Sacred Heart Academy and Sacred Heart Model School, a child development center and a Montessori program. The nuns used to run a college at this campus but it merged in the late 1960s with then-Bellarmine College.

Further west along Lexington Road is the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, also on a park-like campus. The Seminary has been growing – in recent years it has purchased land along Grinstead Drive and built housing for its students.

Other Crescent Hill landmarks include the Crescent Hill Baptist Church, the Peterson-Dumesnil House, the Crescent Hill Library and the many well-known businesses on Frankfort Avenue between Stilz and Ewing Avenues, such as Margaret’s Consignments, Carmichael’s Bookstore and Blue Dog Bakery.
