Cherokee Triangle:

A Preservation District

The Cherokee Triangle Historic District is a vibrant neighborhood two miles from the center of downtown Louisville. Adjacent to a dynamic commercial district, residents are within walking distance of a diversity of coffee shops, restaurants, movie theatres, 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.

The Cherokee Triangle is a registered national historic district. Click here to read more about the guidelines.
