Old Louisville Hidden Treasures Garden Tour
On the second weekend of June each year, Louisville offers glimpses into one of its best-kept secrets. The Old Louisville Hidden Treasures Garden Tour welcomes garden lovers into the private green spaces of the nation’s largest Victorian residential neighborhood. Our gardeners share their personal retreats, tucked behind stately Victorian mansions and protected by vine-covered walls and privacy fences.
In addition to the Garden Tour, guests are encouraged to visit the Conrad-Caldwell House Museum. The Conrad-Caldwell House symbolizes the progressive spirit and Victorian grandeur of Louisville’s Gilded Age. Constructed in 1895 by famed Louisville architect, Arthur Loomis, this Richardsonian Romanesque castle stands as an ornament to the city of Louisville, a distinguishing marker in America’s largest concentration of Victorian homes and is a site of cultural and architectural significance in the city of Louisville. Purchasing a discounted combo ticket for the Garden Tour allows customers to visit this Victorian mansion either the same weekend of the tour or any other date through the end of July that the museum is open. Also, attendees during the month of June can see a special display of an "Indoor Victorian Garden" showcasing plant varieties throughout the house that were typical of those found in the early 1900's. Remember, this special display is only available during the month of June!
