I am a Louisville native, born & raised in the West End. I attended Flaget & UL, then moved to various cities with my job. I'm retired now & live in Sou. CA but I get back to Louisville occasionally and I find that it's changed greatly. As for Old Louisville, I assume that it's the area of 1st thru 7th sts. S of downtown out to UL. It was just an area of big, old homes back in the 50's when I was there. I'm glad that they've been renovated now. I do remember St. James Court as being very trendy back in the 50's however. I miss Louisville.

To get into Louisville from 64 east in Indiana take exit 121 from the left lane and follow all detour signs. To get into Louisville from 64 west follow the signs to St. Louis and get off at the 3rd street exit . Old louisville is straight ahead on 3rd st . Churchill downs is in the same direction . So is U of L.

I have lived in Old Louisville on 1300 block of 1st St. since November last year and just love it. 2 weeks ago I walked through the neighborhood down 1st St, up Ormsby and then up 4th to Central Park. I then walked through St James and Belgravia Ct to make my way home....what glorious vistas along the way!!! Look up people!! The turrets and roof lines are as interesting as any residential neighborhood in Europe! I'm really looking forward to Shakespeare in the Park later this month.

I'm sorry about those suffering from crime, for some reason I always seem to see alot of police around. So far I've been safe and sound where I live. I see residents young and old walking their dogs, jogging, tending their yards..There always a few to spoil things but overall after living in the suburbs for 30 years I love it here!

As to the site I love it..just wish some portions were updated! (Found my house pictured in the 1st St Spring photo section..wish it was updated!!)

Crime has been on the up swing in old Louisville recently. After meeting with the Louisville Metro Police department they have asked for anyone interested in crime in the city to send in their email to the police department. They will then send you information on crime and a map as to crime locations .Police patrols are being increased . Also never leave valuables in plain view for criminals. Set your alarms day and night if you are away. Be aware of yor surroundings !

The city is looking into cutting down and adding paver stone to the alley On Magnolia street between S.Second and S.Third street to help with drainage . What do you think ? During the last flood in this area I was standing in almost four feet of water . I think we need more than a cut down and paver stone . During the last flood water was filling basements and garages. Water was coming up out of the drain . The information Center needs your input . Herb Fink is dealing with the city on this one .

In Kentucky you can open carry a handgun as long it is plain view . Or you can go to the sheriff's office and get a concealed carry permit. Since there are so few police officers in Old Louisville it seems we have no choice but to protect ourselves. I had called the Louisville City Police not long ago. I was told no officers were available. With cut backs this is even happening in other cities.

I was hoping that The Old Louisville Victorian Ghost Tour would take place in October of this year. I was very dissapointed last year when we got to Louisville and there was no Victorian Tour. The special thing about the Victorian Tour were the "Real" ghosts that would appear during or after the story was told and the ability to go into some of the "Haunted Homes". I know that it must have been so much work to get all of that organized, but my husband and I and my friends loved it and have been coming for 4 or 5 years. We miss it and wish that you all could get that together again. I believe that at one time there was even a carriage ride around the fountain in St. James Court. Just wanted to let you know how great that tour was and am hoping that you could bring that back! Thanks!

Thank you so much for a walk down memory lane.I was born in Louisville and lived in and around Old louisville most of my early years there.We live at 802 and 838 south 1st street.We also lived at 117 east Brackenridge.My Mother worked at a little restaurant called The Dinenet Grill in the 800 block of 1st. At 1st. & Brackenridge was Davis drug store. Also on that corner was a small service station and a liquor store.The small building of the service station is there today.There was an A & P food story at 842 south 1st. One block north on the corner were two bars.We also lived in the 900 block of 1st. and two places in the 900 bolck of 2nd. I went to school from the 1st grade to the 6th at Victor H Engerhard when it was on Kentucky street. We ran the streets day and night never fearing anything. I would'nt do that now. That was all 60 years ago. I wish we had taken more pictures back then as most of the places I lived have a long time goin. I know most of what I speak of is just north of what is now called Old Louisville , but I remember it well. I would like to see some pictures of the things I spoke of if possable .Thanks agen.

We currently live in Michigan, but if anyone finds our ring in a pawn shop, please please please send me an email at hpisloud at gmail dot com. We will reward you for your efforts.

What a wonderful resource! The history of street addresses was a fabulous find when researching a building. Thank you SOOOOOO much! There is just so much available at just a click that I was astounded. I realize a lot was lost in the '37 floods, so this is a delight to be able to find so much here. I'm not done yet, but just wanted to give a special thanks for the street address/resident history.

I’m trying to research the Parrish that resided at 1119 S. 4th Street (now 1027 S. 4th Street) Is there a link that may help me there?

I had found old newspapers from the area online somewhere, but after back clicking to the original link, I can no longer find that site..

Thank you for the obvious work put into this site!

Recently there was flooding in Old Louisville. M.S.D. is trying to clean drains in Old Louisville at this time. However, People continue to park over the top of these drains even when M.S. D. post no parking signs. That means these drains can not be cleaned. If you see cars parked on these drains during the posted no parking time . Please notify LMPD to ticket these vehicles before the next rain overtakes Old Louisville . LMPD 574-7010.

Many people are hit by cars in the south because of in attentive drivers or while riding a bicycle. For care for your self you will need up front 10,0000 $$$$$. Worth of insurance. No Md, in Kentucky will see you if they are aware you have been in an auto accident. Due to lawsuit paper work. This is only the beginning of your horror of anguish and pain. Within the legal system.

Why is the un-employment rate so hi in Kentucky ? It is fairly simple ! Many in Kentucky are smarter then they use to be !!!! Today contractors in Old Louisville are dealing with people with college degrees. While they themselves have but a high school degree. Every used car salesmen thinks he is smarter then his customer. Look around how many car sales parking lots in Old Louisville are now vacant...............The old saying goes !!! Thy shall not screw they neighbor !!! Or with it the information shall flow !!!!!!!! I wold rather my building fall to dust then to hire a thieving contractor. We need to start a list in Old Louisville and run them out of business.

Why is it that people in old louisville in good times when they are strong and able to come to meetings will come together and party all night long. However when an Old Louisville resident becomes ill or disabled they are treated as a discard. There are many aging people in Old Louisville. I am sure they would appriciate some company. And possibly a glass of wine......They have stories of the Old Days to tell, if only a few of us would only take in the time for but a whisper into "our future". As so many have past into bygone days .......... To measure one's past is only to look into one's future.........

Recently I watched as one of my neighbors had a roof replaced.It was replaced by http://www.bonedryroofing.com. Looking at it from the ground it looks nice. However the upper area has exposed nails . And the flat roofing edges were nailed and tared over. This is poor workmanship, and a leak waiting to happen.

I grew up in Louisville in the 1950's.....my playground was my dear old Fountain Ferry Park!! What a wonderful place and time.....once I was in contact with a Mr. Jerry Rice, and I loaned him a clown doll from Fountain Ferry to put on display, for a while it was at Kentucky Kingdom...then when I went back it was gone and no one seemed to know anything about it.......I was wondering if anyone knows where these things that were on loan is at and how I can get in touch with Jerry Rice..or anyone who would know. For a few years I ordered Christmas ornaments from him....things that had been in Fountain Ferry.......then somehow I just lost touch with him.......... Any help would be much appreciated and a great help....I am just trying to find out where my little clown doll is at....

Old Louisville is so large I was going to add a second monitor to my computer so I could see the entire place. My computer has a card with a vga and dvi-d connection on the back of it. You can hook up one vga monitor and one dvi-d monitor .This is a notice to everyone that might want to see old louisville on two monitors. If you need a dvi-d to dvi-d cable to hook up your monitor you will not find a cable at any store in Louisville . You can get one on the net. The new trick all of the stores in Louisville are doing now to hook up your monitor is first you have to purchase a new monitor with a hdmi connection then they will sell you a new cable hdmi to dvd-d for an extra $75.00. Make sure you have the cables to hook up a new monitor , before you purchase one. Also make sure you have the proper card to hook up two monitors. Just a tip from a neighbor.

With recent rains , some of you might have gotten water in your basement. A few years ago I too got water in my basement. The problem with regular sump pumps is the intake is at the bottom of the pump. If you get mud or sewage in your sump pump , or if your electricity goes out your sump pump is not going to work. Your basement will flood. The answer is a sump pump made by wayne. The model # is ISP40. I have one . I got mine at Lowes on the east side of town. You can also get them on the net. Just google wayne sump pump ISP40. The advantage to this pump is it has a stack on it with a screen . Mud or sewage can get several inches up around the stack and water can still flow into it. With no electricity the batteries will run the pump for up to 20,000 gallons.

One problem that has not been addressed is air pollution in Old Louisville . Today we can slow the acid rain . We can all take part ! Ride the bus to work. Drive a hybrid vehicle. Ride a bicycle. Install a 90% eff. furnace. Plant a garden. Use solar lighting. This might not fix everything. However , what would happen if all 13.000 people in Old Louisville did it ? What would happen if everyone in Louisville did it. I have done all of these things......

Warning to all ! Subject :Identity Theft. Many of us use a shredder to stop identity theft, however how safe are we ? Recently I was listening to my police scanner as police were sending over their radios names , addresses, and social security numbers of people . Could have one of these people stolen your wallet and used your information to give to the police ? Is it your name, address, and social security number going out over the air. If it is, anyone with $129.00 can go to radio shack , pick up a police scanner and if someone tries to use your I.D. and it is broadcast over a police radio, Your identity can be stolen. Broadcast directly to the identity thief by the very people that are here to protect us.

I lived in Old Louisville in 2005 and was stabbed by a home intruder trying to rob me. I fought the man and held the man until the police came and apprehended the man. It's has been over two years since the bloody battle and trial will soon commence on the 13th of November. The man will serve due-time. I am now requesting from the community of Old Louisville a RECOGNITION OF HONOR for my bravery/stupidity in stopping and capturing a Thief-Repeat Criminal-Attempted Murder-Street Villain--and placing him behind prison bars. My name is Preston Morris and I will be in Louisville for the trial between Nov. 10 & Nov. 15. I can be contacted at PrestonMorris2013<AT>hotmail.com

It is sad to say that recently one of Old Louisville's Old homes that was converted into apartments has burned in the 1200 block of South First St. The fire also damaged a building next to it. Why does the inspections dept. in Louisville not pay more attention to these homes that are being converted to apartment buildings when they are zoned single family ? Many times the wiring in those buildings are not designed for multi family . It is a fire waiting to happen...........

Hello everyone, I don't know how many people read this section, but I hope what I have to say is worthwhile to everyone who loves this neighborhood. I've spent my entire adulthood working to help bring out the best in this neighborhood. I've been involved in Old Louisville since I was 19. (1986) Unlike many people in 1986, I felt that Old Louisville was a special place. Distinct in the U.S. for it's mostly undisturbed concentration of Oueen Anne homes and worth more than what it was getting. I have put more than my fair share of a "pound of flesh" into Old Louisville, and still do currently. I have been influenced by, and have myself convinced several others over the years, that Old Louisville is special. We have all contributed greatly to the improvement of this neighborhood. Some of those that deserve praise are; The Charing Cross Company, The Underhills, Rudy Van Meter, Mary Martin, Ben Handy, Joey & Mark Mosier, and many others. Over the last few years , I have been happily surprised at some individuals (mostly out of town) who see the potential and have been willing to spend large sums of money to improve Old Louisville by making it into an exclusive neighborhood. The trend toward condos as an example. Unfortunately, this has been attempted before by many individuals and they have failed. The influx of these people is exactly want we need in Old Louisville. Yet, why the failure? Sadly, Old Louisville has been both neglected and disrespected by the native Louisvillians and our local government. What should be considered as one of the, ..if not the most beautiful collections of historic homes in the nation, is well... a bitter pill to swallow. There are many individuals that are "Old School" Old Louisvillians that came here and took the risk as I have done because they love this neighborhood and know in their heart that we have something special here. I believe the root cause is a stigma that Old Louisville is known (by the locals) as an area of large cheap units, with no other intent than to trash the place because " o hell, it's an old dump anyway mentality". If we are to live to see Old Louisville's full potential, as property owners,...we will have to take the "bull by the horns". In years past, after the Second Street Association installed decorative street lights, I recommended after another association was going to spend thier money on fighting airport expansion, that it would better be spent on the same. To my delight, it was done and other associations followed suit. This really helped to bring out more "flavor" to Old Louisville in whole. It also shows that instead of several associations, we need to form an Old Louisville association. One association rather than several. This way we can pool our resourses and have a strong political voice. Don't like the trash....lobby our alderman Don't like the crime...lobby our alderman Ideas for public improvments....lobby our alderman Ideas for development..lobby our alderman. Ideas for our own security force...(another subject) Ideas for marketing our neighborhood.....you get the idea. If the government doesn't listen or care(pretty obvious), we can market the area ourselves. This wonderful website is a perfect example, but only the beginning. Let us be educators to individuals who wish to invest as to what they can expect from Old Louisville now and how best to develop it in the future. We can work together as a team or fight it out individually. Myself ,I don't want to see the neighborhood slide, and I don't want to feel that I wasted my life. We are at a tipping point, we can go up together or go down individually. If you would like to write to me and discuss ideas, csmonfort<AT>bellsouth.net

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: David Domine bluegrasspeasant<AT>insightbb.com ADVENTURES IN NEW KENTUCKY COOKING WITH THE BLUEGRASS PEASANT New Cookbook Combines Tastes and Traditions of the Bluegrass Louisville, KY (October 01, 2007) --- McClanahan Publishing House and Louisville author David DominÚ are happy to announce the publication of Adventures in New Kentucky Cooking with the Bluegrass Peasant. The 184-page, hardcover publication features more than a hundred easy-to-follow recipes with corresponding beautiful color photographs and useful tidbits about Kentucky culinary history. DominÚ, senior food writer for Kentucky Monthly Magazine and Arts Across Kentucky, compiled this innovative collection of recipes after years of traveling the foodways of the Commonwealth “in search of the perfect meal.” Although some of the dishes presented appear as new takes on old southern classics, most are original recipes designed to “utilize the culinary bounty that is the Bluegrass.” Whenever possible, DominÚ features regional ingredients and locally grown produce to promote sustainable agriculture and eco-friendly eating habits. “With this book,” he explains, “I hope to focus attention on the incredible array of artisan food makers and unique local products that dominate the culinary landscape of the state, while at the same time recognizing the valuable contribution made by Kentucky farmers.” Bluegrass food-producers whose items appear in DominÚ’s cookbook include Austin-based Kenny’s Farmhouse Cheeses, Shuckman’s Fish Company and Smokery of Louisville, Newsom’s Country Hams of Princeton, and Jamieson’s Chocolates of Mt. Sterling, just to name a few. In addition, DominÚ (or the Bluegrass Peasant, as he’s known) flavors many of his dishes with a healthy dose of wine and spirits from across the state. “Bourbon is a natural for Kentucky recipes,” he says, “so I often include a dash of whiskey here and there as a way to tip my hat to the distilleries that have made much such a tremendous contribution to the culinary traditions of the Bluegrass.” Popular dishes that feature the state’s native spirit include bourbonnaised filet mignon, Henry McKenna baked chicken, bourbon bleu-cheese slaw, Elijah Craig ice cream, and raspberry bourbon shrubs. “Bourbon, like good cognac or wine, has a tendency to enhance many flavors, and it adds a distinctive touch to a wide variety of dishes featuring meat, fowl, vegetables and even fish and seafood, not to mention sweets and desserts. Given the recent trends toward regional cuisine in this country, this first in the Bluegrass Peasant series of cookbooks promises to become a classic for years to come. Price: $24.95 ISBN 978-0913383971 David DominÚ is the successful author of two books, Ghosts of Old Louisville and Phantoms of Old Louisville – both published by McClanahan Publishing House of Kuttawa, Kentucky – and he also teaches foreign Languages at Bellarmine University and Indiana University Southeast. DominÚ will launch the release of Adventures in New Kentucky Cooking with the Bluegrass Peasant with a public signing at the 51st Annual St James Court Art Show in Old Louisville on Friday, October 5, Saturday, October 6, and Sunday, October 7 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on the front porch of the famed Pink Palace on St James Court.

Price: $24.95 ISBN 978-0913383971 David DominÚ is the successful author of two books, Ghosts of Old Louisville and Phantoms of Old Louisville – both published by McClanahan Publishing House of Kuttawa, Kentucky – and he also teaches foreign Languages at Bellarmine University and Indiana University Southeast. DominÚ will launch the release of Adventures in New Kentucky Cooking with the Bluegrass Peasant with a public signing at the 51st Annual St James Court Art Show in Old Louisville on Friday, October 5, Saturday, October 6, and Sunday, October 7 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on the front porch of the famed Pink Palace on St James Court.

I was born in Louisville and grew up in and around Old Louisville. I have asked before if anyone knows what building was on the South East corner of 6th & Main. It has been a parking lot since the 50's. I lived in that building when I was 6 years old. I can't find any info on it. If you can help please E-Mail me. Thanks. Louis. Prop421<AT>aol.com.

Why is it that there are so many white ,drunk U of L students trying to distroy the beauty of Old Louisville by trashing it during parties? Why does the Louisville Police department refuse to respond to these out of control parties ?

I love brink, I love original wood siding! However you do a disservice by stating things like Vinyl siding fades (to the degree and at the speed you state) and can't be painted. I own three homes, two are investment properties, all three homes have vinyl siding. One home was done 17 years ago and though it probably faded a bit, it still looks like new with yearly spray downs. In fact I had the house on the market for a short time and some of prospective buyers thought the siding was brand new. House #2, had ugly green vinyl siding. Contracted the painting out, the painter assured me with proper cleaning, that right primer and paint the paint will last for years. 11 years and the pale yellow still looks great, no peeling, nothing wrong with it. I spray it down once a year. House #3, I purchased about five years ago, white vinyl siding aprox 15 years old. We were thinking about getting it painted since it's boring white, but after spending 30 minutes going over the house my wife and I decided there was no reason to, it still looks very good. The only maintenance we do on our siding is yearly beginning of spring spray downs. I'd call "practically" maintenance free.

This is a very cool website. My family lived on Belgravia Court from about 1964 to 1966. I was only 5-6 years old, but my memories are very vivid. I distinctly remember the buckeye trees on St. James Court and the Shakespeare stage in Central Park. I remember that a couple of our neighbors were Johnny Randolph and Weird Beard, disc jockeys at WAKY radio. Before that, we lived on 4th St., right across from Central Park. The name of the building was The Park, which I'm guessing isn't there anymore. I also attended Cochran Elementary School in the first grade.

The Park has been recently restored as condos -- webmaster  recent view

I noted with pleasure the picture postcard of Covin Cavin School, which was called Gavin H. Cochran or "Cochran" Elementary when I attended there from 1956 through 1961 when we lived just around the corner between 2nd and 3rd Streets at 218 East Hill Street and later on at 1900 South Brook Street over Sloan's Grocery. Then we moved to 1417 South 1st Street where we lived from 1957 until 1963 when we moved out into the county in Okolona after I had attended the 7th and 8th grades at duPont Manual. It was a great area to grow up in and we always had great neighbors while living in Old Louisville.
