The Cherokee Triangle Historic District is a vibrant walkable neighborhood located just a couple miles from the center of downtown Louisville. Adjacent to the dynamic commercial district of Bardstown Road, residents are within walking distance of a diversity of coffee shops, restaurants, bars, movie theaters, boutiques, antique stores, and amenities like the hardware store, grocery and book sellers. Mature trees, some one hundred years old, line the streets, providing shade and beauty.

Historic homes reflecting an eclectic mix of architectural styles dot the preservation district. Styles include Italianate, Second Empire, Queen Anne, Richardsonian Romanesque, Neoclassical, Tudor Revival, Beaux Arts, and many more. Nearby, Frederick Law Olmsted's Cherokee Park and Willow Park serve as an urban oasis for bike riding, walking, sledding and picnics.

Begun as an early suburb of Louisville, the Cherokee Triangle reflects the successful efforts of this neighborhood to preserve its thoughtful historic design while still providing a cosmopolitan and forward-thinking place where Louisvillians can live, work and play.

Cherokee Triangle is a thriving urban neighborhood with a rich heritage. The tree-lined streets, stone fences and brick alleys add to the character of this early city suburb. The historic district looks very much today as it did fifty, seventy-five and even one hundred years ago.

Cherokee Road, originally called Upper Broadway, was designated the main thoroughfare of the suburb. Only affluent Louisvillians could afford to move to the new development. It was a necessity for residents to own horses and carriages for transportation.

As gaslines and public transportation options were expanded, the neighborhood stretched eastward from Broadway. The development of Cherokee Park on 325 acres bounded by Grinstead Drive, Cherokee Parkway and Lexington Road created an anchor for the southern boundary of the district. The Frederick Law Olmsted park, one of more than one hundred Olmsted and successor firm commissions in Louisville, is regarded as a priceless amenity to the neighborhood.

The hundreds of buildings in the neighborhood reflect the evolution of American tastes and aspirations. With some exceptions, it is possible to trace the popularity of architectural styles by traveling east from Broadway on Cherokee Road. The Italianate style of the 1870s is succeeded by exotic revivals, Second Empire, Queen Anne, Shingle-style, Richardsonian Romanesque, Colonial Revival, Neoclassical, Tudor Revival, Beaux Arts, Prairie-Craftsman inspired, and Italian Renaissance. Many of the houses were designed by local and nationally-recognized architects, such as Joseph & Joseph, Arthur Loomis, E.T. Hutchings.

The neighborhood boasts an Andrew Carnegie public library building, now reconfigured as office space, and numerous churches. The use of quality building materials, attention to detail and thoughtful design for the buildings, streets and alleys has contributed to the continuing importance of this traditional neighborhood to the residential fabric of the city.

Perhaps most familiar of all landmarks in Cherokee Triangle is the large bronze sculpture of General John Breckinridge Castleman standing sentry over Cherokee Parkway at its intersection with Cherokee Road. A veteran of both Civil and Spanish American Wars, Castleman lived on an estate across Bardstown Road. He is generally considered the father of Louisville's park system, especially the Olmsted parks.

As Parks Commissioner, General Castleman was responsible in 1890 for bringing Frederick Law Olmsted to Louisville to personally work on the design of Cherokee Park. (This was one of the last commissions Olmsted worked on before entering an institution, according to John Cullinane in his publication, Walking Thru Louisville.) Castleman and Caroline frequently rode through the neighborhood on their way to inspect the new park. Castleman and Caroline were sculpted by New York sculptor R. Hinton Perry. In her work The Cherokee Area, a History, Anne S. Karem comments that the “Castleman" statue, dedicated in 1913, is “one of the few in the country erected to a living person." Purportedly, this bronze work is the only equestrian statue for which the horse posed!

Parking is available for free on Midland Avenue.

The best way to get around is, honestly, to walk. So much that is worth seeing is located within walking distance of our home.

The Cherokee Triangle is an amazing place to live for those of us lucky enough to be here. It pretty much has everything you could ever want. Close to Cherokee Park, Bardstown Road and all of its fine restaurants and shops, and downtown Louisville, Cherokee Triangle manages to remain a cozy little hamlet in the middle of pretty much everything.

If you like trees, well-preserved older homes, great neighbors, good nearby schools, and a little quiet with easy access to all the city has to offer, then you'll love the Cherokee Triangle.

Did we mention that every year we hold an awesome art fair and a summer concerts series?

The carriage house is located three miles from downtown Louisville and less than five miles from Churchill Downs. There is so much that is within walking distance, you may never get in a car while you are here!
