Geschiedenis Louisville 

De nederzetting die uitgroeide tot de City of Louisville werd opgericht in 1778 door George Rogers Clark en is genoemd naar Koning Lodewijk XVI van Frankrijk.

Louisville's earliest neighborhoods were incorporated river towns each with its own strong sense of neighborhood identity. By 1830-1860 the area saw an influx of German and Irish immigrants. By 1890-1930 streetcars marked the era of the beginning of the city's suburbs. After WWII, planning pioneers, including Frederick Law Olmsted, gave rise to neighborhoods, combining rural ambiance with urban amenities. In the late 20th century, many of the city's oldest neighborhoods went through a revitalization movement. Over the last decade, the Louisville community has seen an enormous growth in the number of immigrants and refugees who now call the city "home."
