Let’s Celebrate the Beauty of Old Louisville

Old Louisville Real Estate, Bruce Moore, Realtor

No doubt about it, Old Louisville is one of Louisville’s most beautiful neighborhoods!  The houses are really what sets this neighborhood apart from others in the city.

Made up of mostly Brick Victorian Architecture, it is the 3rd largest Designated Historical Neighborhood in the entire United States!

Old Louisville Real Estate, Bruce Moore, Realtor

Not only that but despite its up and downs ….. the Great Flood of 37, Tornado of 74 and some history of neglect ….. most of the houses remain intact and are still in great shape.  Old Louisville is coming back from the downturn it took starting during WWI when owners started to subdivide the houses into apartments.  There are still quite a few old house/apartments but the practice has stopped and is being reversed thanks to the Old Louisville Neighborhood Association and the conversion into a Historical District.

On May 16th and 17th, Old Louisville is celebrating its neighborhood by inviting others to the
2nd Annual Old Louisville Springfest

Organizers are expecting about 7,000 people to visit the neighborhood. There will be bands, vendor booths, plenty of food and drink including the Old Louisville Slushie for adults which is a blend of bourbon, orange juice concentrate and lemonade concentrate.  Yumm!! And the newest addition to the festival is a Beer Garden!

And while you’re there, take a peek at some of the Beautiful Homes and Condos For Sale in Old Louisville!

I am very proud to be listing a beautiful House at 1208 S. 1st street and I will be holding an open house on Sunday from 2-4.

I am not going to tell you about Hand in Hand Ministries

Hand in Hand Ministries Louisville
I am not going to tell you about Hand in Hand Ministries!

A special guest post by my friend, Phaedra King

Except to say, Hand in Hand believes that all people deserve life’s essentials – food, water, clothing, shelter, education and medical care.  Their primary focus is to provide these essentials to people in Appalachia, Belize and Nicaragua.

Hand in Hand Ministries Louisville
Hand In Hand Ministries
I could talk about how HIH builds homes for families in Belize who are homeless or living in substandard conditions.  I could sing praises about their Outreach Center, which provides daycare, medical care and educational services for children marginalized by poverty and disease.  Or I could give you statistics from the many other wonderful services HIH provides in Central America.  But I won’t.I won’t go into details about the Pathway to Change program, a scholarship program which makes top-quality education available to children who might otherwise fall through the cracks in Nicaragua. Or the home repair program, food pantry, computer and GED classes offered through HIH in Appalachia.Why won’t I tell you about Hand in Hand Ministries?  I won’t tell you because, on paper, Hand in Hand sounds like a million other non-profit organizations.  My words alone will never be enough endorsement for the magnitude of benevolence Hand and Hand provides.I will, however, tell you about what sets Hand in Hand Ministries apart from other organizations.

Immersion Trips

For years, I worked at a non-profit organization which operated with a coalition of charitable organizations to pool efforts in fundraising and support.  Every year I’d watch in awe as we facilitated the transfer of millions of dollars in donations from individuals to non-profits.  Those non-profits, in turn, would use the funds to help people. At the end of the year, when all the money was counted and disbursed, I would congratulate my co-workers on a job well done.  And then, honestly, I would sit and wonder “what is actually being done with all that money? How do I know it is really helping?”

But that’s how it works, we give money to the cause of our choice and cross our fingers that the money is being put to good use.  I am in no way suggesting that it isn’t, but there is always that “how do I know” feeling after you hand over your check. Well, this is exactly what sets Hand in Hand Ministries apart.   Oh, we’ll take your money and, as a board member, I can personally guarantee that it will be put to good use!  But, you don’t have to trust me; you can see for yourself.

Hand in Hand offers immersion trips to Appalachia, Belize and Nicaragua.  You don’t have to wonder about the homes being built in Belize.   With an immersion trip, you can go to Belize and help build one of those homes.  If you are passionate about education, you can take an immersion trip to Nicaragua and meet the children in the Pathways to Change program.  Or, if you want to stay closer to home, you can take an immersion trip to Appalachia and help a family who desperately needs home repairs.

When you return home, you won’t need to congratulate yourself on a job well done, because you will have been transformed.  Both your heart and your mind will have gone through a beautiful metamorphosis, the likes of which you never believed possible.

So no, I’m not going to tell you about Hand in Hand Ministries, I’m going to invite you to come see for yourself.   Go on an immersion trip (or 2 or 3).  Change someone’s life for the better and possibly your own life in the process!  But beware; you will never look at life the same way again.

Hey Louisville….Do You Know Where Your Yard Waste is Going??

Louisville, Do you know where your yard waste is going??

When the City of Louisville started collecting it they promised to recycle and compost our yard waste, right? Well, that’s NOT what’s happening. Since 2012, our collected yard waste is going into the landfills. That’s right, THE LANDFILLS!
Louisville Realtor Bruce Moore
Why? Because the waste is collected in plastic bags. That’s a load of compost, if you ask me! But all is not lost. Tim Darst of MoveOn.Org has created a petition to convince Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer to stop this insanity.“Our yard waste has been going into the landfill since 2012 because it contains plastic bags. The Mayor can stop this with the waive of his pen. Call Mayor Greg Fischer now at 502-574-2003 and tell him he needs to ban plastic bags from the yard waste.”What else can you do? It’s easy…. just sign the Petition, letting Mayor Fischer know that this is not acceptable. I’m signing, won’t you?

Louisville Hip and Trendy? Why yes, we are!

Louisville Hip and Trendy? Why yes, we are!

Louisville, Kentucky … Possibility City and gaining national attention again. Thrillist.com included Louisville in its ‘America’s Most Hipster Cities’ list.

Louisville Realtor, Bruce Moore

According to Thrillist …. “Louisville’s all about bourbon, BBQ, and bands that play indie rock. Oh, and beer. It’s home to rockers My Morning Jacket and VHS or Beta (who, ironically, now live in Brooklyn), is the birthplace of Hunter S. Thompson, and actually has restaurants that don’t require staff uniforms (!!!) — so don’t even think about complimenting the waitress on her flair. The city’s best hotel, 21C, is a “boutique-cum-contemporary art museum”.

Oh, and did you hear we may be getting zip lines across the Ohio River? What a great idea! Insider Louisville reports that with the popularity of the Big Four Bridge, the idea of zip lines across the river is now being discussed. Louisville already has Mega Caverns, the first underground zip lines. So why not zip across the Ohio? I’m all for it!
