About Us

Auburndale Neighborhood Group

For me, Auburndale has always been the "'tween community". During the early 1950's my parents and grandparents rented what was know at the time as the "Pony Farm". Located top of a rise next to Old Third Street Road, it was Walton's Mountain some 20 years prior to the popular television series. Each day I would run and open the gate for my Dad returning from a day of work at the L&N Railroad South Louisville Shops. During the day my Grandfather and I would walk down the backside of the hill to the railroad tracks to Auburndale whether for an errand or maybe a haircut. My Mom's brother who lived in Breckeridge County stayed with us occasionally and so did Dad's sister who worked for GE. In those days Auburndale was very much rural. Connecting all with the big city and connecting points in the country, a sort of "tween community".

During the mid-1990's I had the opportunity to work for Beverly Melton, who represented the community as 7th Ward Alderman and had deep roots in the community. That time serving Alderman Melton gave me the opportunity to reconnect with the neighborhood I came to love as a child and in 2000, my Wife and I returned to Auburndale after a 46 year absence,

For 2009, Auburndale remains a "tween" community with commuters entering and leaving Louisville daily by New Cut Road and Old Third Street Road. We tout no office towers or huge industries, just families with homes nestled south of Iroquois Park enjoying the quiet and unpretentious surroundings

A rich history

Auburndale is a neighborhood on the south side of Louisville. The area was originally a part of Isaac H. Fenley's farm, called Hickory Grove, which was 1,100 acres (4 km²) in size by 1879. Developer W.E. Stonestreet purchased and began to subdivide part of the farm in 1907, but the area was not fully developed until the 1960s when the city annexed the area, and developers promoted Auburndale's proximity to Iroquois Park, which is located on the other side of Palatka Road.

· Neighborhood Associations Build Relationships
A neighborhood association is one of the best ways to build relationships among neighbors. Members of a neighborhood may go years without knowing neighbors two doors away. A spirit of warmth and friendliness can be generated through the formation of an association. Additionally, through an association, neighbors can share concerns, needs and interests, which may lead to supportive and efficient problem solving.
· Neighborhood Improvement
If neighborhood improvement is a goal, local neighboring residents are the best resources to help initiate change. Neighborhood associations are a great resource for Louisville Metro staff and residents in developing long-range improvement projects.
· Create an Organized Voice
Through an association, your neighborhood has a unified voice in Louisville Metro government. The services that the Louisville Metro can provide to your neighborhood can be accessed efficiently through an association. Information on Louisville Metro services can also be provided to a greater number of neighbors through association meetings and communications, resulting in a benefit to the neighborhood as a whole.
