Cave Hill Cemetery is at 710 Baxter Avenue in the famous Highlands neighborhood. It’s right next to Cherokee Triangle, a neighborhood that would delight any history lover.
It’s Never too Early to See Cherokee Triangle
Henning and Speed, two well-known former Louisville residents, developed a large selection of Cherokee Triangle in the late 1800s. They wanted to create an ideal suburban environment. What they created was a neighborhood with just a few winding streets that are filled with beautiful homes in many different architectural styles. Many late 19th century designs are on display in Cherokee Triangle, including late Victorian homes. There are many traditional designs inspired from history, including colonial designs.
The homes here are large, made with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms. Many homes here have features unique to the architectural styles that were popular in those days, features like fireplaces and built-in bookcases. Each home here is unique ad all the homes here have modern features and upgrades, along with lots of cool history. See Cherokee Triangle this August and see how Louisville looked during some of its early days.
