Rediscover Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
Ready to step back in time? Visit the Conrad-Caldwell House in Old Louisville, and step into the time when Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was written. The children’s book will be the highlight of the Victorian Book Club on May 29. The club is free to join, and the event is one you won’t want to miss.
Adventuring Through History
The Conrad-Caldwell House is one of Louisville’s most distinct Victorian homes. It’s located in the heart of Old Louisville, near the famed St. James fountain. And it’s the perfect setting to talk about one of the most famous stories written during the Victorian Era: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Visit the house on May 29 from 6 to 7:30 pm to enjoy the event.
Nibble on light refreshments while you look around this historic home, which probably looks a little like the one where Alice used to live. Many activities and games will be enjoyed, along with discussion about the book itself. This is a book club event, after all. Registration for the club is free, but sign up early because space is limited.
The Conrad-Caldwell House is a perfect example of opulent Victorian elegance. Intricately carved fireplaces, detailed crown molding and fine furnishings decorate the entire house. It was nicknamed “Conrad’s Castle” when it was built in the early 1900s because it was so very modern, with actual indoor plumbing and electric lighting. Gargoyles, arches and ornamental stonework make the building a breathtaking sight. It was an impressive sight back then, and the home remains breathtaking to this day.
When you step inside, you’ll feel a little like you’re stepping into Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Learn more about this timeless book while you visit one of Louisville’s most unique homes, in a beautiful neighborhood in the city. The Old Louisville area is close to the historic district of downtown Louisville, the original city, so you really will feel like you’ve entered a bygone era.
