Off to the Derby

Derby 2012 has come and gone and once again we hosted wonderful guests hailing from states all across the country AND as far as Nova Scotia and New Zealand.    Our guests represented New York,  Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Georgia, Florida, Illinois, Ohio, Maryland, Texas and Kentucky!  Many of our guests have been with us at Derby for years - one as long as 12 years!  We love showing off our fine city in the Spring at Derby.  It's a one of a kind event of which we are proud to be a part!

We hosted a "Welcome to Derby" Reception in the gardens of the DuPont Mansion on Thursday before Derby.  In addition to our Derby Guests we invite friends and neighbors to help us welcome our guests to Louisville.  Our guest list included Carol Timmons, Editor of Business First.  Please see what Carol had to say in Business First by going to  Thanks, Carol, for your kind words!

We invite you to join us in Louisville.......we keep the "Derby Hospitality" going all year long! 


  1. The "Welcome to the Derby" reception looks like so much fun. I love the fashionable hats on all the ladies, I would like to visit around the Derby strictly to photograph hats; such amazing style. I bet the excitement for the derby is electric leading up to the event.

  2. If more beautiful snow is needed for your wall, how about letting an artist paint it for you. This tranquil picture, by American painter at the turn of the 20th century, John Henry Twachtman, , is an example of many others to be found at that can be ordered online from as a canvas print of any size to be delivered to your door.
