See a Grand Victorian Mansion This July

Louisville has a long and interesting past. For decades, many different travelers came to the city and created a melting pot culture. The downtown area filled up with elegant shops and amazing homes. To this day, some of this incredible history remains intact. This July, go see one of these amazing relics from the past, the Brennan House.

The Ronald-Brennan House

In the 1860s, 5th Street was full of graceful Victorian mansions. They were the elaborate ladies of architecture, full of curving lines and glorious detail. But as the world changed all around them, these mansions disappeared one by one. Now, only the lovely Brennan House remains.
