Hidden Treasures Garden Tour of Old Louisville
The Second Street Neighborhood Association presents its 23nd Annual Hidden Treasures Garden Tour on Saturday, June 11 and Sunday, June 12, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm each day. This year, the tour highlights the Toonerville neighborhood, which encompasses 1st, Floyd, and Brook Streets in the Old Louisville Historic Preservation District. This neighborhood association takes its whimsical name from the Toonerville Trolley comic strip, based on the short Brook Street trolley that ran from 1915 until 1930.
The registration and will-call table will be on the lawn of the Conrad-Caldwell House Museum at 1402 St. James Court. Visitors may rest, refresh, and shop a silent auction for garden related items, Father’s Day baskets and more—all in air-conditioned Haskins Hall at the house museum.
As usual, The DuPont Mansion Bed & Breakfast Inn on 4th Street will host Art in the Garden, where local artists will paint from noon to 5:00 pm both days of the tour.
