Neighborhood of the Week - Seneca Gardens
The City of Seneca Gardens is a historic area in the City of Louisville and while it wasn’t incorporated until 1922 there are several homes that were built in the 1800s. Some locals believe that these early homes were used a part of the Underground Railroad.
Since its incorporation, Seneca Gardens has been an ideal place to live for many Louisvillians. It is a self governed sixth class city with nearly 242 single family homes. There are several multi family homes as well and one non-residential building, the Keneseth Isreal Synagogue. The neighborhood has a strong focus on green space and trees and even has an arborist on the City Commission to help with their Neighborhood Arboretum Project. Seneca Gardens’s central location allows its residents convenient access to many main streets and interstate, along with many parks, local restaurants and shops.
