If you stand still in Old Louisville it looks like time stopped right along with you.
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Stained glass,
brick and mortar and an air of a time gone by. If you call Louisville, Kentucky home,
you should know the world calls it an indisputable refuge for America's
architecture of the Victorian era.
"Our most famous is Old Louisville
which is one of the largest in the country," explained author and historian David
"It really makes the neighborhood
unique on a national level," said Domine, "Practically every type of Victorian
architecture that would have been prevalent in the late 1800's is on display
If you stand still in Old Louisville it
looks like time stopped right along with you.
"You can come and you can get a slice
of what it looked like in the past. You
can see how people lived100, 125 years ago," Domine said.
Although you may not know the correct
terms or the accurate name of the style we all know it's beautiful.
Some 1,400 structures built primarily
between 1885 and 1905.
"You can see styles that they don't
really build anymore," Domine said, "People tend to not appreciate what they
have in their own backyard so I think that's why maybe locally people don't pay
attention to Old Louisville and our other neighborhoods as much as they should."
Not just Old Louisville, but
neighborhoods like Portland, the west end, the Highlands, Germantown, Butchertown
and so many more.
