Step Back in Time in Old Louisville
It’s impossible to decide which one of the historic homes in Old Louisville is the most beautiful. This is one of the largest collections of Victorian houses you can find anywhere in the U.S., and Louisville takes pride in this neighborhood. The homes here may be 100 years old -- or even older -- but they have been renovated and preserved over the years. That’s why the houses here are still full of hard-carved fireplaces, incredible crown molding, beautiful decorative wrought-iron balconies and all those other little touches you find in Victorian architecture.
Old Louisville has a little bit of everything, from community-wide arts and crafts events to frequent garden gatherings to the amazing Central Park, one of the highlights of the city and where you’ll find outdoor Shakespeare in the summer. What will you find in Old Louisville once you start looking? You’ll never know until you go see it for yourself.
