Old Louisville is a jewel of the city and any trip to town should include a visit. The Conrad-Caldwell House Museum is one of the most imposing building in a neighborhood of imposing mansions. Highly recommended.

The house itself, and the location on St James Court, is something to see if you are into Victorian architecture and beautiful craftsmanship. Especially striking are the floors in each room downstairs, as each room has a different quilt pattern represented in the parquet. Stunning....More
