"Old Louisville" is written by a Louisville-based author, David Dominé, and is illustrated with beautiful photographers by the photographer/stylist/writer team duo, Franklin and Esther Schmidt. "Old Louisville" is a lavishly illustrated history and guide to a famous Louisville, Kentucky neighborhood.
Old Louisville: Exuberant, Elegant, and Alive takes an intimate tour of fifty residential designs, from grand mansions to cozy cottages, from familiar house museums and boutique hotel adaptations to private homes of charm and sophistication. Many of these residences have never been opened to the curious eyes of readers who are fascinated with old homes and interior design and intrigued by the skill and imagination necessary to rescue endangered buildings and convert them to the needs and comforts of modern living. Old Louisville is alive today with the busy activities of commerce and creativity. It is abuzz with people heading off to work at an office downtown or to a studio downstairs, while next door or down the block new neighbors are hunkering down to restore an old gem from a bygone era. Street fairs and art festivals roll with the vitality of contemporary life in a historic setting, and the pleasant sounds of Derby party celebrants mingle with the echoes of those now past.

Veterans Memorial Park of Kentucky
Veterans Memorial Park of Kentucky is a 33,000+ square foot dedicated area that will lie adjacent to Veterans Memorial Parkway, a named segment of KY 329 in Crestwood, Kentucky. The Park will be next to the main entrance of South Oldham Middle and South Oldham High Schools.
The Park will unveil markers each year that will serve to remind us of our veterans, especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our American freedoms. The two types of markers will provide historical information about wars/campaigns/military actions where Americans fought and died and include quotes appropriate to the purposes of the Park.
Veterans Memorial Park of Kentucky is designed to foster reflection, education and inspiration, especially to the youth. A sidewalk will lead visitors past plantings, benches and trees enhancing the markers. There will be year inserts in each section of the sidewalk. When totally complete, there will be "300 Years of Military History", covering America's military history of 1776-2076. What will be significant about the sidewalk is that, if an American died in a military action during that year, the section of the sidewalk will be colored. Thus, one will only need to look down to see if someone paid the ultimate sacrifice during that period.
Veterans Memorial Park of Kentucky will be unique when compared to most parks dedicated to veterans found in the United States. Meant to be interactive and functional as a community gathering place, Veterans Memorial Park of Kentucky will be an educational and living reminder of those veterans who served and those who sacrificed for our American freedoms to youth, community members, visitors and all who will visit it.
