New Life is Blooming in Old Louisville
Springfest is just about two blocks away from the Toonerville Trolley Park in one direction, and just a few more blocks away from Central Park in the other direction. That means you'll be right near the heart of the Old Louisville neighborhood, and you'll be surrounded by some of the city's prettiest historic homes.
Old Louisville is famous for its Victorian architecture. So many of the homes here date to the turn of the century, and many of them were custom-built and designed to be ornate, beautiful works of art in their own right. A century ago, each home was crafted -- not manufactured. Fireplace mantels are hand-carved, rooms are detailed with molding, little details and extra touches are everywhere. People have wanted to live in Old Louisville for decades because this neighborhood is so beautiful, and that's why the homes here have been so well-preserved, beautifully renovated and lovingly upkept over the years. Inside, the homes have plenty of historic details -- but they still have the modern conveniences you really need in a home.
Celebrate Old Louisville in springtime this May, and see if you end up falling in love with the houses here, too.
