The History in Smoketown
Near both the Highlands and Old Louisville rests Smoketown. This neighborhood was once filled with brickmakers who fired bricks in their big kilns all day. This is why this part of the city was known as Smoketown. Many of the bricks made here were used to build the rest of Louisville, in fact.
Smoketown's history is still visible today. There are many historic buildings still standing here, along with many pretty homes that date back to the early days of the city. Smoketown is changing rapidly as more people come here to renovate homes and modernize the neighborhood. This is a neighborhood that's full of opportunities and full of pretty homes that are ready to be updated.
