We drove downtown, parked and walked around this beautiful area. The houses were huge and so well maintained. A very nice place to take a leisurely walk.

If you love Victorian Homes this is a must see. There is approximately 1800 homes that are still left to see in Old Louisville and they are awesome.

You will be hard pressed to find a more beautiful area of architectural homes anywhere. Enjoy these lovely homes on shaded streets and stop at our little cafes.

This quaint little Old Louisville is full of gorgeous very old homes. Many are original, yet a lot have been restored. If you like old houses, you'll love Old Louisville!
