Crescent Hill, a Louisville neighborhood, has truly stood the test of time. According to a Courier Journal article by Martha Elson, Crescent Hill began as a "self-sufficient community centered around church, library, home and school." Over a hundred years later, the neighborhood still stands as one of Louisville's best locations to live.
Crescent Hill was hit hard by both the movement to the suburbs and a terrible tornado, but its residents believed it special enough to fight to preserve. Southern Living featured the neighborhood in its collection of "The South's Best Comeback Neighborhoods." Crescent Hill residents "love to talk about.... the well-kept cottages, beautiful churches, and involved citizens....the turnaround of the Frankfort Avenue business corridor." Indeed, the landscape of Frankfort Avenue has changed. According to councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh, "Fifteen years ago you didn't have to look for cars before crossing Frankfort... Now it's the heart of Crescent Hill." (http://www.southernliving.com/home-garden/best-neighborhoods-00400000061751/page8.html)
What makes Crescent Hill unique enough to make such a comeback? A combination of factors, including its perfect location right in the middle of the Clifton, Clifton Heights, Brownsboro-Zorn, St. Matthews, and Cherokee Gardens neighborhoods. These neighborhoods all have a rich history that makes them worthy of preservation and pride by their residents.
In addition to its location, Crescent Hill stands out for its variety of resident-owned shops along Frankfort Avenue, including Blue Dog Bakery & Café. The beautiful nearby homes in Crescent Hill allow residents the luxury of accessing this strip on Frankfort Avenue by foot-without the necessity of a car. The strip features specialty shops and cafes, coffee shops and ice cream stores. And a couple of times a week, a Frankfort Avenue farmer's market is available for purchase of fresh grown, organic fruits and vegetables, as well has homemade breads.
Homes in Crescent Hill retain the rich, luxurious, historic feel that buyers are unable to find in the typical subdivision. Streets are dotted with tall, mature trees that offer an unmatched beauty.
