About Louisville Kentucky

Louisville, Kentucky is today a thriving city home to around 602,011 people. It is listed as the 8th most affordable city and 9th on the list of best cities for homeowners. Louisville also has direct access to three major interstate highways and an international airport. Famous for its food and easily accessible entertainment, Louisville has established itself as one of the most prominent cities of the south. Founded by George Rogers Clark, of Lewis and Clark, in 1778 the city gained its name from the French King of the 1700's Louis XVI. Although he had no luck in his own country, Louis XVI was more than generous in his contribution to the Patriots during the Revolutionary War. Louisville's location along the Ohio River, established it as a port city. Louisville became much more popular during the 1800's after the invention of the steamboat. Steamboats increased travel time, upping demand for shipments and allowed for easier navigation of the Falls of the Ohio, a shallow water area with a fossil bed underneath that often grounded ships. Louisville's own personal steamboat, The Belle of Louisville arrived in the city in 1931 and is the oldest river steamboat in operation today.

By 1830 Louisville was the largest city in Kentucky. Its quick growth can be attributed to the fact that Louisville was the first U.S. city to institute planning and zoning measures to facilitate city growth. The city would later serve as a Union Army supply depot during the Civil War. By 1880 Louisville was the first U.S. city to introduce the secret ballot and was now nationally known for its horseracing passion, and the incredible Kentucky Derby.

In 1923 Louisville's staple dish, the Hot Brown was created at the Famous Brown Hotel. It is a featured dish in the state and can be found in many interpretations around the city. Louisville was also the birthplace of Muhammed Ali, famous boxer and philanthropist. His non-profit museum is located on the riverfront and is a large contributor to the community.

Since the 1980's Louisville has redone much of its infrastructure, as well as contributing more to the arts, such as the Kentucky Center for the Arts which has since become home to the Kentucky Opera, Ballet and Orchestra.  The Louisville Waterfront Park is 55 acres of waterfront property that had been converted into a public parks system. It was dedicated in 1999 and was a large part of Louisville's infrastructure renovation.

Louisville's major community partners and neighboring cities include Cincinnati (94 miles), Lexington (69 miles), Indianapolis (111 miles), Nashville (153 miles), and Columbus (190 miles).

Prospect was known by settlers in the 1700’s as Sandhill. Similar to other historic Louisville neighborhoods, Prospect gained access to the Louisville Electric Railway in 1904 which drummed up travel in the area. People could now travel from the city to residential neighborhoods and Prospect expanded and developed further. Prospect was a largely agriculturally based until 1960 when high-end homes began construction. Today prospect includes various outdoor hiking trails and a golf course. They are also home to many local boutiques and restaurants. The architecture of Prospect features colonial, federal, and contemporary style homes.
