While In Louisville, Check Out Glenview
In the mid-to-late 1800s, many of the wealthiest residents in Louisville were seeking to build their dream estates. These estates were built with lavish ideas and perfectly executed. Glenview residential properties were built on high cliffs to take advantage of the beautiful scenery. After the completion of the Louisville, Harrods Creek, and Westport Railroad, easy access to the community was finally granted. While the railroad was abandoned in the 1950’s, and finally closing in the 1990’s, the expansion into Glenview had begun. The land where these luxurious homes were built was originally owned by a meat packer and was called Glenview Farms.
In the early 1980’s the city of Louisville attempted to annex the residential area. This attempt led the residents to form this sixth class city of Glenview in 1985. Following the creation of the city, many of the original residences, dating back to the 1880’s, were added to the National Register of Historic Places. A portion of these homes and gardens located on the original plots of land were included in what is called the “country estates historic district,” in hopes to keep the historic feel of the city.
