Walk Through History in Old Louisville

Stepping into Old Louisville really is like stepping through time. You'll travel to the late 1800s, when the Victorian Era was flourishing, and architecture was truly ornate. Old Louisville is full of Victorian homes in Italianate, Queen Anne and even Romanesque styles, homes that are as breathtaking now as they were a century ago. When Old Louisville was new, the city's early industrialists and tobacco barons came here to build their mansions and townhomes, and each wanted to outdo the other. The result is block after block of breathtaking homes, each one so fabulous and so highly stylized, you'll never be able to pick just one favorite among the bunch.

The tall oak trees cast shade over beautiful ivy-covered brick and stone while wrought-iron details and custom mosaics glitter in the sunlight, and that's just the outside. Inside, homes in Old Louisville have hand-wrought woodwork, carved fireplaces, crown molding, chandeliers, sweeping staircases, well, you get the idea. Now, get a look at all of it for yourself, and visit Old Louisville this February. Once you do, you won't ever want to leave.
