Historic Louisville-Area Homes Recognized

Louisville suburb Windy Hills and some nearby towns are redefining themselves and drawing attention to some of their historic Louisville-area homes with new signage, a brochure and a look back at some early settlers of the area. Signage along Brownsboro Road and other Windy Hills thoroughfares now read ‘Windy Hills — City of Historic Homes.’ The city is now working on a brochure that will note the locations of these historic Louisville-area homes and provide a bit of history about them such as former owners and other information of note. Richard Taylor, Kentucky pioneer, Revolutionary War soldier and father of former President Zachary Taylor, built one of the homes. Also known as the Taylor-Herr House, this and other historic homes will have markers outside explaining a bit about their histories. The John Marshall Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Louisville-Thruston Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution install the markers in front of each historic Louisville-area home. Daughters of the American Revolution members have been documenting each historic home and sending the information back to their national headquarters in Washington, D.C. for posterity. Thus far, they have commissioned and placed markers in front of three other historic Louisville-area houses: the William Christian home near Oxmoor Center, the Isaac Hite home on Lucas Lane in Anchorage and the Jonathan Clark home on Trough Springs Lane in the Belknap neighborhood.
