See the Dollhouse Display at Locust Grove February 19
Dollhouses are a time-honored and enduring type of art. Part toy, part miniature museum and always interesting, dollhouses have been around for about 400 years. This February, take the chance to see an incredible display of them at historic Locust Grove for free.
Dollhouses on Display
A dollhouse is made to be a home in miniature, and you’ll see a display of them that will absolutely stun you this February. The Louisville Miniature Club created these amazing little houses. You’ll see perfect period rooms, vignettes and a variety of beautiful, tiny houses. The Louisville Miniature Club oversaw the restoration of the Locust Grove dollhouse project several years ago, and now their talents will be on full display for this unique event.
Admission to the dollhouse display is free all afternoon beginning at 1 pm, though donations to the club are always welcome of course. Locust Grove is at 561 Blankenbaker Lane. This historic property seems frozen in time, a little piece of history carved out from the pages of the past. The neighborhood that surrounds Locust Grove, Indian Hills, is the perfect setting for this timeless place. You’ll see why when you come here this February.
Life is Large in Indian Hills
Indian Hills is a large riverside neighborhood that stretches from the water, right past Louisville Country Club, to Brownsboro Road. You'll see right away that Indian Hills looks like no other neighborhood in Louisville, and you'll be surprised when you realize that downtown Louisville is just a few miles away.
The large lots and natural features in Indian Hills give this whole neighborhood an out-in-the-country sort of look. You'll feel far away from the fast pace of the city, and for a while you may not worry about what's happening in the quick-moving world of social media. Gorgeous rocky hills, winding streams and thick stands of trees give Indian Hills its distinct look and peaceful feeling. Much of the land here is left natural, and that gives residents the opportunity to enjoy nature and a certain sense of quiet isolation that's not always easy to find in a neighborhood.
The large homes here are built to suit such beautiful surroundings, many made in gorgeous traditional styles with big front entranceways, sweeping driveways and traditional architecture. Lots of homes here have extensive landscaping and incredible high-end features inside. You'll find lots of wood floors, gourmet kitchens, custom cabinetry and big, open spaces in Indian Hills.
