Of all the Louisville neighborhoods Crescent Hill is perhaps the most celebrated for keeping its original personality. One of the oldest Louisville neighborhoods, Crescent Hill began in the late eighteenth century as pioneers trail blazed through the area. The original pioneer road quickly became a main thoroughfare for this part of Kentucky and half a century later prominent, wealthy Louisvillians built their summer residences in Crescent Hill.
Today, these beautiful Victorians can still be seen, most magnificently restored to their original luster. Besides stately homes designed for a simpler time Crescent Hill boasts street after street of well-maintained bungalows, craftsman and cottage style homes. While laid out in city blocks the flower lined streets remind both residents and visitors of a Rockwell inspired small town Americana.
Crescent Hill is also home to some of Louisville's most famous buildings and organizations. The Louisville water tower and treatment facility, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary with its sprawling acres, and St. Joseph's Orphanage, host of one of Louisville's largest summer picnics. are just a few attractions to be found in this lovely suburb.
