"Maybe to a child it would look like a kingdom of fairytale castles, to a romantic, a land that time forgot..."
Old Louisville is a historic district and it is the largest preservation district featuring almost entirely Victorian architecture. A majority of its structures are made of brick, and it contains the highest concentration of residential homes with stained glass windows in the U.S. Many of the buildings are in the Victorian-era styles of Romanesque, Queen Anne, Italianate, among others; and a large number of blocks have had few or no buildings razed. It also features the largest collection of pedestrian-only streets of any U.S. neighborhood. Eleven such "courts", where houses face each other across a grass median with sidewalks, were built from 1891 to the 1920s and are unique to Louisville.
