Why Tour with Us?
The Historic Old Louisville Walking Tour is a guided tour of the heart of the Victorian Mansion district in Old Louisville. Designed by a prominent local architect and historian, this tour focuses on the history and architecture of this nationally recognized historic preservation district boasting the largest collection of Victorian Mansions in the United States. The tour begins in the comfortable, Frederick Law Olmsted designed Visitors Center in Central Park. Children are free.
We take your safety and comfort seriously. The Visitors Center provides a clean restroom. The Visitors Center is located next to a police substation. You are not met on the street corner as with other tours.
Each tour attendee receives a free 48-page color brochure that explains the Victorian Mansion district as part of our mission of education and enrichment.
In the event of unsafe weather or any similar happenstance that would hinder our ability to provide you with the walking tour, we will also assist in rescheduling or refunding your order.
All proceeds from the Historic Old Louisville Walking Tour support the work of the Old Louisville Neighborhood Council, a 501c3 nonprofit organization that serves as an advocate for the community and works for historic preservation.
