In this series I share places to see and things to do in Louisville, KY. There are fun pictures to experience the city and doll size activities to enjoy from home! Whether you have been to Louisville Kentucky, are planning a visit or you love to learn about new places, follow along for fun!

A Victorian Stroll
Louisville boasts blocks and blocks and blocks of Victorian neighborhoods. It makes for a lovely walk through these turn of the century neighborhoods.
There is a snippet about it in our recent doll size “school project”.
Neighborhoods have seen revitalization as owners have restored these beautiful houses. See Victorian craftsmanship and decor in the Conrad-Caldwell House Museum. This house-turned-museum sits on the edge of one of the most lovely streets in Louisville.
It was closed the days we were there, so check out the hours before you visit. There are plenty of lovely exteriors to see, so we enjoyed a stroll through the neighborhood.
Now if you’re not going to Louisville anytime soon you should seek out a Victorian house or two in your town to take your own Victorian stroll!
Why, you say?
It’s all in the details. You may even find a surprise or two in those details!
You will definitely find something elegant and grand.
Keep an eye out for:
- stained glass
- details in the moulding around the windows
- interesting roofs
My favorite Victorian streets in Louisville Kentucky:
- St. James Ct
- Belgravia Ct.
- sections of 4th st.
- sections of 3rd st
St. James Ct and Belgravia have an amazing atmosphere for a stroll. Each house is so unique from the next. You will be amazed!
And if all this Victorian talk gets you in the mood for a few Samantha adventures, then visit a post I did for Doll Diaries to make a lovely Victorian picnic.
And spend an afternoon with Samantha.
Hope you enjoyed our Victorian stroll!
