The Highlands is one of the most iconic neighborhoods in Louisville.  Built around the vibrant Bardstown Road corridor, the walkable neighborhood is both historic and extremely cool!

The Original Highlands dates back to 1814 and was called “New Hamburg”. In the 1800s, Bardstown Road, a new streetcar, & Cherokee Park attracted residents. By the 1930s, the area developed into today's Highlands!
