The Old Part of Louisville

Old Louisville is a large historic district just outside downtown Louisville, and the name is very descriptive of this community. This part of the city is full of turn-of-the-century homes, stately townhouses that once served as summer residences for the Louisville elite. Wealthy farmers would come to the city from the country to stay in their fancy city houses in the summer months. That’s why the summer is the perfect time to visit this beautiful neighborhood in the heart of Louisville.

Some of them are covered with twisting ivy. Others are adorned with ornate wrought iron. All are unique and interesting, and each has its own story to tell.

The Conrad-Caldwell House Museum is a beautiful example of the architecture that was popular in Louisville during the late 1800s and early 1900s.
