43nd Annual Old Louisville Holiday Home Tour
The 42nd annual Holiday Home Tour takes place in Old Louisville, a neighborhood reminiscent of Yuletides past mingled with today’s urban vitality. A national historic preservation district boasting the largest collection of Victorian architecture in the country, Old Louisville is a neighborhood as diverse as its history is rich. Named “One of the Great Places in America” in 2016 by the American Planning Association in Washington, D.C., the neighborhood’s private residences and historic buildings seem to exude the revolutionary and transformative spirit poured into their very foundations well over 100 years ago. The Holiday Home Tour is the primary fundraiser for the Old Louisville Neighborhood Council whose mission is to preserve, protect and promote this historic neighborhood.
Tour-goers aged 21 and over can relax between tour stops and enjoy a premium bourbon tasting hosted by the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience. Tastings are held at the Louisville Bourbon Inn (1332 S 4th Street) from 12-5pm Saturday and 1-5pm Sunday.
Free parking is available at the Cochran Elementary School (500 W Gaulbert Ave, Louisville, KY 40208, but cars enter behind the school from Lee Street). Free shuttles will make regular pick-ups at Cochran and circulate throughout the tour area. Free parking is also available in the lot behind the Louisville Woman’s Club at 1320 S. 4th Street. Access is from the alley behind the building, accessible from 4th Street or Park Avenue.
