Historic Old Louisville

Historic Old Louisville is the city’s urban jewel! Boasting the largest contiguous collection of Victorian mansions in the United States, we are an exceptional heritage tourism destination.

This historic preservation district has 45 square blocks of a rich array of architectural styles from the 19th century. Come and revel in this celebrated neighborhood. And hopefully you have come during one of the great arts and music festivals, such as the Kentucky Shakespeare Festival, the St. James Court Art Show and the Garvin Gate Blues Festival, SpringFest, Old Louisville LIVE, Hidden Treasures Garden Tour, or the exquisite Mansions Tour or Holiday Home Tour.

The heart of Old Louisville is Central Park, which was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted. The Historic Old Louisville Neighborhood and Visitors Center is situated in the park in a beautifully restored, 110 year old mission style building located at 1340 S. 4th Street, Louisville, Kentucky 40208. Google us, find us on Mapquest, or follow the signs and we will be happy to help you explore and enjoy this extraordinary area.

 Join us for the Historic Old Louisville Walking Tour, a 60 minute guided walking tour, showcasing the Victorian Mansion district. It starts at the Visitors Center and is offered all year round. Click VISIT US for more information.
