In this book, you’ll not only read about some of Louisville’s  oldest existing institutions and the lives involved in them, but you’ll also  encounter a few unusual stories to help illustrate what life was like in  Louisville long before the city we know today.

You’ll learn about the early days of the Kentucky Derby and about the  first-ever bottled bourbon, Old Forester. You’ll meet the family behind  Pearson Funeral Home, the city’s oldest operating funeral service, and  hear the stories behind Louisville’s oldest parks and cemeteries (and how  sometimes they overlapped). You’ll get the muddled history of the old  fashioned cocktail, discover the story of a thrilling duel in a cemetery,  and learn about a storied history of heroics on the Ohio River.

Ultimately, what Oldest Louisville aims to present is not only a bit  of historical insight into Louisville’s history and culture, but also  entertaining stories to put that history into a measure of human context.  Enjoy the walk through time.
