Welcome

Radiant in the beauty of blossoming pear trees in early spring, historic Second Street beckons residents and visitors to explore its charm.

Gracious, yet unpretentious, Victorian, Richardsonian and Italianate homes hint at the fashionable and elegant living of another era.

Centrally located in the heart of Old Louisville, Second Street homes have become one of the focal points of an impressive renovation and restoration effort. Bounded by Broadway on the north and Cardinal Blvd. on the south, it is difficult to imagine the once blighted condition suffered by so many of these splendid homes.

Historically, many of the stately mansions and villas in the Old Louisville area were constructed during the phenomenal growth period of the 1890's. Spurred by the Great Southern Exposition of 1883, the area attracted some of the wealthiest and most notable citizenry to its environs.

This was an era of leisure, wealth, and conspicuous display. Opulent decorations, meticulous craftsmanship, and lavish furnishings were meant to dazzle both visitor and passerby alike.

Today they still do.  MORE...
