Reviewed 4 December 2013

We love going to Old Louisville area every year during the St James Art Festival. It makes for a beautiful weekend in late Sept/early Oct to walk around the tree lined streets and beautiful homes

“Great historical architecture”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

Got a chance to visit Old Louisville with one of my friend. I was totally impressed by the architecture by my first sight. Explored old louisville during an evening walk and great enjoyed my visit. My entire visit would have been incomplete with out seeing Old Louisville.

“History Preserved”
Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

No matter where I travel, I find the historic old neighborhoods and visit them. So, for like minded individuals who visit Louisville, the Old Louisville neighborhood is a must. The neighborhood Association is active sponsoring the St. James Art Fair, the Hidden Treasures Garden Tour, the Old Louisville Victorian Holiday Homes tour, and Old Louisville Ghost tours. Visit the Old Louisville center to get maps for self guided walking tours or just drive the area and take in the majestic old homes. Last visit to the area I saw a Wheelman group in period costume on antique bicycles. See Shakespeare in the Park. Enjoy the largest collection of Victorian homes in America right here in the River City.

“Beautiful Victorian Buildings”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

This area is famous for its well-kept Victorian buildings. Each of them is different, with its own exterior decor. One thing is for sure, the owner must be proud of his property. The gardens and meadows are taken good care of, the front stairways are clean and even polished. I was there in summer 2012. Instructed by my gracious innkeepers, I strolled 4th and 5th Street and dropped by Central Park. Besides the ancient and exquisite architectures to admire from outside, the streets are also appealing with trees and flowers and pot plants, thriving and lively. I would recommend the Magnolia, St. James Court. The sidewalks are clean and evenly-paved, a good neighborhood for strollers.
