Originally a coal mining town in the early 1880’s, Louisville has transformed into one of the most desirable cities in the country. The high quality of life in Louisville is supported by the positive economic environment, low crime rates, access to more than 1,700 acres of open space, vibrant art scene, top rated schools, and diverse employment opportunities. The quaint downtown Main Street area maintains small town charm while providing modern amenities, boutiques, coffee shops, and multiple restaurants.
