See the Historic Homes of Glenview This February
Louisville is famously a port city that grew and grew in the early days of the U.S. because of its location along the Ohio. But farther up the river, Harrods Creek became a very important port of its own. And by the late 1800s, the area was famous for its amazing farms and beautiful homes. Some of these historic homes still remain in an area known as Glenview. Go get a look at them this February and see some less well-known Louisville history.
The waterfront near Harrods Creek is visually stunning. The area is full of rock outcroppings, stone walls formed when early paths were cut through the rocks and thick tree canopies that cast shade across the beautiful landscape. There are wetlands here, as well as forests and meadows. This means a lot of diverse wildlife live in the area. A lot of people live here, too.
