West St. Catherine Neighborhood Association

Let's Get Ready for Merger

Feb 25, 2002

Any suggestions on how to bring Old Louisville/ Limerick, as well as other historic districts, to the forefront in the public eye?

Most of our residents know that our neighborhood is an unrivalled showpiece of late Victorian architecture. Many of you know more about it than I do, but I have been told that the district's extent and quality rivals justifiably famous areas in Charleston and Savannah.

Unfortunately, the powers that be don't seem to be attuned to this potential. Louisville will be at a crossroads when the merger comes--will we follow Savannah and Charleston with attention to preservation and restoration, making Old Louisville into the tourist and small business attraction it has always promised to be? Or will we follow Lexington's example (popular practice in Louisville, for some reason) and become a ring of malls surrounding a decaying interior?

How do we publicize what we have? How do we set our architectural heritage before the eyes and imaginations of our community?
