Butchertown dates to early 1796 when Irish and German immigrants planted roots in east Downtown. Many of the residents at the time worked within the butchering community as butchers or supporting jobs within the industry hence the neighborhoods name. While Butchertown was a thriving neighborhood for both industrial and residential, the great flood of 1937 destroyed many homes and building. The building of the flood wall and interstate also lead to more demolition of the area. In the 1960s residents fought together to start the neighborhood preservation to keep the history alive which was inspired by Old Louisville. You'll find that Butchertown is one of the more unique neighborhoods with a mix of home styles like Victorian brick-a-brac, shotguns, and new construction.
Butchertown is a diverse, cultural and art district valuable to the Downtown area. Many of the building features large murals that represent the neighborhood and history of the area. Residents have the convenience of shopping, restaurants, galleries, and bars while being close to the interstate and other popular Louisville neighborhoods.
