Butchertown Apartments for Rent

(hide neighborhood information)

In the early 1800s, Louisville’s Butchertown attracted German immigrants looking for work in the slaughterhouses and meat processing plants. They built modest shotgun homes, townhomes, and duplexes, and settled down to raise their families.

Fast-forward to the 21st century and Butchertown residents take pride in their restored historical dwellings. Several residents open their homes to the public during the annual Home and Garden Tour held in May. Louisville residents stroll the streets admiring the splendid-though-modest architecture and colorful gardens on East Washington Street between Webster and Adams Streets.

Butchertown lies east of downtown Louisville between I-65 at Main Street and I-71 at Beargrass Creek and Mellwood Avenue. Ongoing revitalization of the area attracts young professionals looking for living quarters within walking distance of Waterfront Park on the Ohio River. The Louisville Extreme Park, a 40,000 square foot public skate park, also calls Butchertown home.

Located in the heart of Butchertown, St. Joseph’s Parochial School at 1420 East Washington Street offers a program for three year-olds and an after-school daycare. Students in grades five through eight attend St. Joseph’s.

Butchertown welcomes residents and newcomers desiring to live close to the amenities of downtown Louisville. It’s only five minutes to the arts and culture of downtown, the KFC Center Arena, and two minutes to the river, five minutes to the shopping and nightlife of the Highlands, and five to ten minutes to St. Matthew’s Mall.

Butchertown’s most famous resident, Thomas Edison, lived in Louisville from 1866 to 1867. He worked for Western Union as a telegrapher, but left town after getting fired for spilling sulphuric acid during an experiment. The acid ate through the floor down to his boss’ desk on the floor below. Although Edison left town, he isn’t forgotten. The Thomas Edison House Museum still stands at 729 East Washington Street, Louisville, Kentucky, in zip code 40202.
