This house is positioned one of the many walking courts in Old Louisville. Every Louisville tour group is taken through these historic walking courts that date back to the Victorian era. Houses would line both sides of the streets to face each and a green space would separate the houses. People could have their “evening constitutional” in order to see and bee seen.

The walking courts of Old Louisville are seen on both Louisville tours.
