Whiskey Row

Twice listed on Preservation Louisville’s 10 Most Endangered List, Whiskey Row on Main Street is a block of commercial buildings dating from the early 1850s to the turn of the century. These local landmarks are representative of Louisville’s early whiskey industry but have fallen into deep disrepair.

Last May a group of investors including Steve Wilson and Laura Lee Brown purchased several of the buildings, saving them from demolition. Now the row house is moving toward preservation. Stabilization is expected to occur in the summer of 2012, and the project will likely be eligible for tax credits. Raise a glass to that!
