Event Details

Sam and Debbie Thomas will present a slide program highlighting Crescent Hill: Its History and Resurgence, the companion to his popular book, Crescent Hill Revisited.

The basis of their narrative remains the oral histories of those who grew up in Crescent Hill and were young when the neighborhood was just emerging. Their voices are now almost all silent, but their stories still resonate. Maps, newspaper accounts, diaries, and photographs enhance this well researched and documented study in new urbanism as it was occurring.

This event is co-sponsored by The Filson Historical Society and the Louisville Historic League.

Samuel W. Thomas is the author of several books including The Architectural History of Louisville 1778-1900. He was involved with many local building restorations and is a founder of Preservation Alliance. His wife, editor Deborah McGuffey Thomas, is a former director of the Kentucky Oral History Commission and associate director of the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education.

Reservations are suggested.
