This just published book is a perfect Christmas present! Not just a beautiful coffee table book with history about Historic Old Louisville, it is also a treasured collection of tested recipes. If that's not enough, it is a guidebook to many architectural gems in Historic Old Louisville. The book has been flying off the shelves of local Louisville bookstores and gift shops, but you will find copies available at local Bed and Breakfasts, including, of course, at the Inn at the Park and the DuPont Mansion Historic Bed and Breakfasts, both of which are featured in the book with some fabulous recipes.
"Feast" is a fundraiser for the Old Louisville Chamber of Commerce and the Old Louisville Community Development Corporation. It was made possible, in part, by an initial grant from the South Fourth Street Neighborhood Association. The Presenting Sponsor is the nationally recognized law firm of Franklin, Gray & White who's "office", the beautiful Speed Mansion, is featured on the front cover. Kentucky food and travel writer, David Domine, is the book's author and Robert Pieroni, Louisville photographer and graphic designer, is the photographer.
The price of this new regional favorite is $24.95. Get your copy today and then, pick up a few more for Christmas gifts......

Founded in 1884, the Filson is the region's privately supported historical society where thousands of people annually conduct research, attend programs and tour it's mansion and museum. Located on Third Street (just behind the DuPont Mansion) the Filson library holds over 50,000 titles, more than 10,000 historic items and 1.5 million manuscripts, photographs and prints. The collection includes genealogical files, portraits, letters, diaries, business records and much more material dating back to the 18th Century. In fact, a recent DuPont Mansion guest came to Louisville and stayed with us because we were so near the Filson. Her family (the Galt family) was prominent in Louisville's history and she has donated all the family records to the Filson. If you want to learn more about the Galt Hotel and the family that founded it then be sure to visit the Filson!
