Come and explore the country’s most extensive collection of Victorian mansions and picturesque homes at the 36th Annual Old Louisville Holiday Home Tour, an absolute must for architecture buffs and history enthusiasts alike. In keeping with the rich tradition of Southern hospitality, homeowners in the nation’s premier Victorian neighborhood invite you and yours inside their charming residences to get a unique glimpse of life from a bygone era – a slower time when elegant women rushed about in bustles and corsets and when dapper gentlemen donned tails and ties for dinner.
Good cheer and tidings of the season abound as visitors to this one-of-a-kind national historic preservation district tour nine neighborhood dwellings that have been lovingly decked in old-world finery and festive holiday décor.
Enjoy the spirit of the yuletide at this matchless holiday event in the heart of Kentucky’s largest city and see why people are talking about America’s Victorian Gem, Old Louisville.
Celebrate the Holiday Season and Tour the interior of beautiful Old Louisville Homes, along with the Woman's Club, Frazier House, Presentation Academy School, and the Tompkins-Buchanan-Rankin Mansion in Spalding University.
