The Victorian mansion was built in 1882. Throughout the years it has been owned and modified by several people. We have taken efforts to restore this house to its original beauty by working with the Louisville Preservation Society. While restoring the house, we stripped the walls down to the plaster and found 2 locations that were signed by the paper hangar in September 1905. Those signatures were preserved under a protective glass. This house has so much character with its 12 foot ceilings, ornate trim and large rooms. In the past several years, the Thompson Street Opera group has reserved the house for 2 months at a time because it was a great place for them to live and rehearse.
The entire house is over 4500 square feet, but has been divided into 2 distinct dwellings. The side of the house where you will stay is the front side where the original family would have entertained guests. The back side of the house was mostly reserved for the staff.
Interaction with guests
We live about 20 minutes away from the house and can be called upon if needed.
- No placing holes in the walls to hang items
- We ask that you do not open windows because they are the old style windows equipped with weights in the walls.
My wife and I have restored an old Victorian mansion in downtown Louisville. The house was built in 1882 and we have performed almost all the restoration ourselves. We have traveled extensively in South America, Europe, Scandinavia and the Netherlands so we know what it is like to be in new places. Our goal is to make your stay in the Louisville area great. The house is located at 2133 W Chestnut St Louisville, KY 40211.
