Chickasaw Neighborhood Grant

Louisville Metro Government has been awarded a grant from the National Park Service’s Underrepresented Communities Grant  program*.  The grant provides funding to survey the historic buildings and sites in the Chickasaw Neighborhood and list them on the National Register of Historic Places. This is a multi-year project during which time there will be several meetings.

The first community meetings to discuss the project were held Saturday, November 16, 2019 at the Catholic Enrichment Center (3146 W. Broadway) and Tuesday, December 3, 2019 at the Westwood Presbyterian Church (4432 Greenwood Avenue). The meetings were cosponsored by the Samuel Plato Academy and Chickasaw Neighborhood Federation.

We are forming a voluntary, advisory group to help shape this project. If you are interested in participating, please contact Savannah Darr (see below). We are working to schedule future meetings to help answer any questions or concerns.

*Funding is provided in whole by the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) administered by the National Park Service.
