Southwest Louisville History Book

The Southwest Dream Team's Historical Committee met at the University of Louisville's library archives this afternoon for the purpose of researching pictures to use for the organization's highly-anticipated book. The book, a history of Southwest Louisville, should be available by next holiday season.

The enthusiasm and dedication I see in these individuals is incredible, and I want to share that enthusiasm with you. I will urge you again; please, if you find yourself with any extra time or have always wanted to take part in a neighborhood group, this is the one.

You could feel the excitement of the project as we flipped through photographs of forgotten times and familiar places. We realized in short order just how large of an undertaking this project is. From Shively to Kosmosdale and everywhere in between. That's a lot of history. I feel lucky to be a part of what we are doing, and so will you. Please contact them by visiting the website above. You will not regret it.

Also, if anyone has any photos that could be used for this project, please contact me by clicking on "About Me" in the left hand column. We may be able to work something out. Right now I am looking for old pictures of Dixie Highway's treasures like restaurants, landmarks or old shopping centers. Especially anything from Valley Station, as there is a shortage of such items in the archives. I thank you in advance.
