ABOUT WEST LOUISVILLE
Initially, the area was populated predominantly by German and Irish immigrants. However, by the early 1900s the shift in home ownership and occupancy was to African Americans.
Throughout the 20th century, West Louisville became a thriving commercial and residential community, and perhaps more importantly, the epicenter of Louisville’s civil rights movement. Out of its segregated roots, the foundation was built in West Louisville for local African American activists to fight against discrimination in public facilities, in schools, and in housing. In the late 1960’s, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. joined local activists in holding demonstrations for open housing in West Louisville, leading to an open housing ordinance being passed in 1967.
The existing late Victorian building stock in the Russell Historic District, which ranges from modest to opulent in style and scale, is tangible evidence of the evolution of this area of western Louisville, reflecting both the settlement of these distinct ethnic groups and the decades of struggle and triumph by this community. Today, Community Ventures and the City of Louisville are working with longtime residents to contribute to the reemergence of West Louisville as a residential enclave and hub of economic growth and opportunity.
