Named because of its hilly location, the Clifton area is an older neighborhood that used to be a district of Crescent Hill. Within the last 15 years, the community seceded from Crescent Hill, forming its own neighborhood organization. It was during this time that Clifton experienced an economic boom and commercial properties sprang up along Frankfort Avenue, the heart of this community.

Located just a few miles east of downtown Louisville, the Clifton neighborhoods were developed over a sixty-year time span, much longer than most Louisville neighborhoods. This time span gives several different variations of the residential Victorian style architecture as well as a less dense, residential layout than other nearby communities. In addition to the large Victorian structures, other housing styles in the area range from smaller shotgun houses to larger two and three story homes. Large porches and balconies make the area family friendly with plenty of sidewalks, tall trees and open areas for walking and playing.
Many Clifton restaurants have been awarded Louisville Magazine’s “Best of Louisville,” and LEO Weekly’s “Readers Choice” awards. In addition to providing one of the top dining areas in Louisville, this area is home to the nation’s largest Braille publisher, The American Printing House for the Blind, and the country’s first school for the visually impaired, the Kentucky School for the Blind.
The Clifton neighborhood and community provides an interesting streetscape incorporating the modern commercial properties with the older Victorian residential properties for what turned to be a popular social platform for many of its residents and is what invites visitors from all over the city to come and enjoy.
