The Junior League of Louisville

Being a Realtor is one of my favorite things that I do. A close runner up is being involved in my Louisville community, volunteering to make a difference, and meeting great new people. Not long ago, I found a great organization that helps me do all three: The Junior League of Louisville, founded in 1921. The Junior League of Louisville (JLL) is a part of a nationwide League that was founded in 1901, The Association of Junior Leagues International.

So, what is the JLL? Our mission statement states “The Junior League of Louisville, Inc. is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, to developing the potential of women, and to improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. “ This is a group of ambitious women ready to serve our community. In the last year that I have been involved, I have had the privilege of volunteering at the Family Scholar House helping to teach single mothers to cook healthy meals, Blessings in a Backpack meeting children who touched my heart, and Keep In Touch where I was able to help women check in to get a mammogram. These are just a small portion of the charities that the JLL is involved in. We also are available to help non profit organizations find volunteer members for temporary events.

The JLL also takes care of their own members by offering free monthly classes to train and educate us. We take this training and go out into Louisville to make our community a better place. In the 1940s, the JLL helped create the Children’s Theater. And more recently, the JLL had a big hand in helping create the Waterfront Park. These are just a few of the great things that we have done. The Junior League of Louisville is an amazing organization and I am proud to be a part of it. But we can’t help all of these charities without the great generosity of Louisville citizens. Two of our biggest fundraisers are our HollyDays 3-day, buy local shopping extravaganza in November, and selling our deliciously amazing cookbooks including our newest cookbook, Bluegrass Gatherings.

I am an active member who sits on the Marketing and Public Relations committee for the JLL this year. If you have any questions about the League or donating, please email me at Katelyn@AtHomeInLouisville.com.

 A “most endangered” list is a preservation tool for recognizing sites with historic, cultural or archaeological significance that are directly threatened or in immediate danger of being lost. The “Endangered Properties” list has a long history in Louisville. It was initially created by Preservation Alliance, and in 1999 the list was taken over by The Louisville Historic League. The list is now compiled and published by Preservation Louisville, Inc., Louisville’s citywide preservation organization since 2007. This year along with the list of “Louisville’s Top 10 Endangered Historic Places” list, Preservation Louisville will also announce “Louisville’s Top 10 Preservation Successes”. The lists were announced during a 10:30 a.m. press conference in front of one of Louisville’s Whiskey Row buildings - Patrick O'Sheas Restaurant, a recipient of a 2010 Preservation Success award. Preservation Louisville, Inc. is a citywide, non-profit preservation organization that works in partnership with local, state and national organizations to promote preservation of Louisville’s historic resources through education and advocacy.

Architectural Styles of Old Louisville

The neighborhood known as Old Louisville is like a step back in time with big beautiful original Victorian Houses. The development of Old Louisville began in the 1830's. Several aspects of Old Louisville architecture are significant.  First, a variety of Styles ranging from the formal, symmetrical designs of Renaissance Revival to the romance of Queen Anne and Chateauesque, can be viewed within a one or two block area.  Second, a diversity of colors, materials and scale abound in the residences here.   Three-story homes along Third and Fourth Streets are the largest and most elaborate, followed by those in St. James Court, Ormsby, and Second Street. Smaller row houses can also be seen in Old Louisville, including a number of carriage houses converted to private residences.  A variety of dwelling types, including some early experiments in apartment buildings and duplexes, can also be seen. Many buildings contain bits and pieces from several architectural styles as there are many of them to be seen in Old Louisville such as Victorian Gothic, Italianate, Renaissance Revival/Georgian Revival, Queen Anne, as mentioned before, and the Tudor, and Beaux Arts styles just to name a few. This is all part of the eclecticism that makes Old Louisville very picturesque.  There are many tours available of Old Louisville from walking to driving tours. In my opinion the best tours are the walking ones because then you can truly appreciate the uniqueness of Old Louisville.
