See History’s Most Romantic Story Locust Grove April 17

Romeo and Juliet, that most famous pair of lovers, will be at Locust Grove on April 17. See the crew from the famous Kentucky Shakespeare in the Parks series perform this beloved play full of romance and woe, and see it all at beautiful Locust Grove.

Enjoy Wine and Romance

These are the days of wine and roses, or at least this day is from 6 to 8 pm. Bring your own chairs or blankets to sit on to see this performance on the grounds of Locust Grove. Old 502 Winery will have wine to offer, and Locust Grove will provide some tasty hors d’oeuvres to go with it. If the weather is unkind to our young lovers, the play will be held indoors at the Locust Grove auditorium.

Romeo and Juliet at Locust Grove

It’s free to attend and watch the play, though donations are appreciated. Get there for seating at 5 pm, because the show starts at 6 sharp. Historic Locust Grove will provide a beautiful backdrop for this timeless story of love gone wrong. This is one of Louisville's prized historic properties, and you’ll see why when you visit. You’ll find the extensive grounds and historic Locust Grove home at 562 Blankenbaker Lane.

Lots of events are held around this part of Louisville throughout the year, so you can find lots of reasons to come back to the lovely communities near the river, like nearby Riverwood. When you get a look at some of the gorgeous housing in this area, you’re going to want to come back often.

Make History in Riverwood

Riverwood is full of properties that look a bit like historic homes. Come here to see big, traditional homes built solidly out of brick, stone and siding. You'll find lots of federal-style and other Old World architectural techniques that remain timeless even in this century. Because while homes in Riverwood may look historic, this is a very modern neighborhood with contemporary interiors and plenty of features that today's families want.

The lots and trees here are big, the streets are wide and homes have plenty of space. But there's another reason so many people in Louisville want to live in Riverwood: the location. It's just a quick drive to downtown Louisville in one direction and the famous, funky Highlands is a short drive away in another. The river really is close by, and Locust Grove is right next to the neighborhood itself.

You'll want to make your own history around Locust Grove when you come to this part of the city. Isn't it time to start your own timeless romance with a gorgeous neighborhood near the river?
