With its eclectic mix of well-maintained historic homes and nearby bustling business district, the community of Jacobs offers residents a vibrant lifestyle. Many of the homes in this well-established neighborhood sit on large lots with mature landscapes. Originally known as Jacob’s Addition, Jacobs originated when nearby Jacob’s Park (now Iroquois Park) opened in 1892. The community was named after Louisville mayor Charles Donald Jacob.

Home designs in Jacobs are a rich mix of historic architectural styles. You’ll find everything from Craftsman houses built in the 1920s and 1930s, to Colonial-style homes constructed in the 1960s, to traditional-style and Cape Cod-style residences from the 1940s and 1950s, and even 1900-era Victorians. Jacobs encompasses zip code 40215. The community is bounded by Berry Boulevard to the north, Taylor Boulevard to the east, Interstate 264 to the south, and Seventh Street to the west. The area is mostly residential, although there is a commercial district containing businesses, shops and service establishments, and an elementary school.

Of the many attractive aspects of Jacobs is Watterson Lake Park, which is located in the neighborhood. This 11-acre public park has a fishing lake with accessible pier, picnic areas and a walking path. To the west just outside of the community is Shively Park. This public park features tennis courts, a baseball diamond, picnic areas, grassy fields, and plenty of large shade trees. The community’s namesake, Iroquois Park, lies outside of the community to the south. It has the WPA-Era Iroquois Amphitheater, which is an outdoor facility that sits 2,400 people. The park also has an archery range, basketball and tennis courts, disc golf course, fishing lake, horseshoe pits, picnic areas, playground, and miles of walking, hiking and horse trails.
