Take Your Own Tour in Old Louisville
After you see amazing art during the guided tour at the Speed, take your own walking tour of Old Louisville. This is one of the city's very best walking neighborhoods, because Old Louisville has the largest collection of pedestrian-only streets in the entire United States. There are 11 beautiful courts here that you can only access by walking, and this is where you'll find some of the treasures of the neighborhood.
Old Louisville is mostly residential and mostly filled with Victorian homes that are 100 years old or more, so there are treasures here everywhere you look. You can hardly turn your head in Old Louisville without finding another grand home with custom stonework and jaw-dropping designs. Soaring towers, tall windows, recessed porches and gorgeous wrought-iron details are all over Old Louisville. Inside, these homes have fireplaces, hardwood floors, chandeliers, even marble accents and hard-carved woodwork.
There’s art all over Old Louisville, whether you’re inside the museum or outside exploring the neighborhood. The homes here look like mansions, and some truly are, but you’ll find that they make perfect family homes for today’s families, too. Drop in to the Old Louisville neighborhood, and find the family home that’s here waiting for you.
