Louisville, KY

One of several cities in the US designed according to the ideals of the City Beautiful movement, Louisville is home to features of beautification and grandeur throughout the city. After the Southern Exposition (a sort of “World’s Fair” for the South that took place from 1883-1887) was held in the city, Louisville grew quickly throughout the Industrial Revolution. The Old Louisville neighborhood, designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, is the largest Victorian neighborhood in the US, and the St. James-Belgravia Historic District adjacent to Louisville’s Central Park, both are neighborhoods that exemplify these City Beautiful ideals.
