20th Annual Crescent Hill Garden Tour June 7th

For just $10, anyone can see 10 different gardens in the beautiful Crescent Hill neighborhood on June 7. It’s the 20th Annual Crescent Hill Garden Tour, and it’s an event that no garden enthusiast will want to miss.

Traipsing Through the Tulips

The Crescent Hill Garden Club works hard every year to organize the Garden Tour, and this year is unique because it marks the 20th anniversary of this neighborhood stroll. The tour takes guests to 10 colorful, unique gardens in the Crescent Hill neighborhood. Be prepared to participate starting at 9 am. The event ends at 5 pm.

The tour begins at one of Crescent Hill’s most distinct landmarks: the Peterson Dumesnil House. It’s located at 301 South Peterson Avenue. And since you’re already participating in the tour, you will have the chance to tour this historic house before the day is over. Some of the prettiest gardens in all of Louisville will be on the tour. You’ll see unique plants and flowers, not to mention a lot of the Crescent Hill neighborhood itself.

Up on the Hill

Because it’s located between two forks of Beargrass Creek, the Crescent Hill neighborhood used to be known as “Beargrass.” The area was first developed in the 1850s, and it’s one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city.

Today, Crescent Hill is known for its beautiful homes (and their gardens!). The neighborhood is primarily Colonial Revival and Classical Revival architecture, which was a popular style when the area was first being built. It reaches to the St. Matthews city limits. Frankfort Avenue runs, roughly, right through the center of the community.

You’ll get a good look at this historic beauty when you take the garden tour, a neighborhood event that will delight any nature lover.
