Register three team members and bring the fourth for free as part of our Fall promotion.

Before you “Do the Lou”, aka Sight-seeing in Louisville this week-end, grab your best buds, and hit the streets with The Louisville Quest.


Louisville’s own version of the Amazing Race’, the Louisville Quest is part race, part scavenger hunt and part historical, sight-seeing tour. This Saturday’s event – The New Adventure, incorporates a bit of the shopping district into the history and adventure of downtown Louisville.

Each Quest ends with an Award Ceremony where teams earn bragging rights and token awards at a downtown restaurant or other fun location. Once you get a glimpse of the sights, museums and businesses that downtown Louisville has to offer, you’ll want to see more.

Adventurers begin their Quest near the corner of 4th and Market Streets outside the Starbucks at the Ky International Convention Center. Register Now to join this Saturday’s Quest.

The Most Haunted Place on Earth. Just What the Doctor Ordered?

Just in time for Halloween, Waverly Hills Sanitorium is hosting a Very Haunted House

Opened in 1910 as a two-story hospital to accommodate 40 to 50 tuberculosis patients. In the early 1900s, Jefferson County was ravaged by an outbreak of tuberculosis (the “White Plague”) which prompted the construction of a new hospital.

The hospital closed in 1962, but according to local legend, legions of spectral residents refuse to leave to this day. Known by many as “One of The MOST HAUNTED PLACES ON EARTH”, Waverly is a place known world wide to be FULL of History & Paranormal Activity…

If your a ghost whisperer, the best way to experience Waverly Hills is to come see it for yourself. Tours are offered daily. Plans have been developed to convert the Waverly Hills Sanatorium into a four-star hotel which will cater to the haunted hotel crowd as well as regular hotel patrons.

Are you brave enough to spend the night with the spooks?

(No title)

What John Michael Kohler saw in 1883 when he looked at a cast-iron horse trough was the bathtub that launched a bathing revolution.


Using a process invented by Scottish-born entrepreneur David Buick for bonding porcelain enamel to cast iron, Kohler advertised that “a horse trough/hog scalder, when furnished with four legs will serve as a bathtub.” The first KOHLER bathtub sold for one cow and 14 chickens.

For the record, the item’s use as hog scalder was considered a more important marketing point than its ability to function as a bathtub. However, after the first enameled tub was installed in a 4th Street Victorian Louisville home, taking a bath was elevated in status making clawfoot tubs, and fancy ‘salle de bains’ all the rage. By the turn of the century, a luxury bathroom would be a grand-sized room, outfitted with all the fittings, trim and traps, the cost would come to $542.50.
