Walk to New Local Shops
Crescent Hill residents love to talk about their neighborhood near downtown Louisville. They’ll tell you about the well-kept cottages, beautiful churches, and involved citizens who saved the local library and improved Kennedy Park. They’ll also talk about the turnaround of the Frankfort Avenue business corridor. “Fifteen years ago you didn’t have to look for cars before crossing Frankfort,” says councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh. “Now it’s the heart of Crescent Hill.” Neighbors walk to locally owned restaurants and shops, which they happily share with visitors. “We’re at the right place and time for this swing toward a love of great neighborhoods,” says Don Burch, owner of Quest Outdoors.
Blue Dog Bakery & Café owners and Crescent Hill residents Bob Hancock and Kit Garrett built their Frankfort Avenue business with hard work and fresh bread.
