Hosted by the Filson Historical Society, Notable Louisville Neighborhoods and the People Who Put Them on the Map is a series designed with community input focusing on one neighborhood a year.

Participants will be given a self-guided walking tour package and are encouraged to return at their leisure to see all that Butchertown has to offer.
