But after spending an afternoon strolling the five square blocks of Historic Downtown Louisville – made up of modernized one-hundred-year-old wooden buildings – eating creme-of-the-crop food, visiting small art galleries and sipping on coffee/wine/beer on charming patios you might decide not to make that drive to downtown Boulder afterall.
This charming old coal mining town is full of town pride with many town events – including summer Friday night street fairs, mom and pop stores and an influx of people wanting to live there.
In 2018 the median house price was $614,950, up 36.7 percent since 2014. Close to downtown the housing inventory is a mix of old homes that have been expanded and modernized and small bungalows but as you get further from Louisville’s epicenter the housing inventory becomes subdivision homes built in the 70s, 80s and 90s.
Local tip: Louisville is not pronounced like the city in Kentucky. It is pronounced like the name Louis with a ville on the end. Louis Nawatny, platted his land into the town and named it after himself in the late 1800s.
