Germantown is a small neighborhood located three miles to the southeast of downtown Louisville, tucked between Smoketown and the Highlands. The area, whose full name is Germantown-Schnitzelburg, was originally a 1,000-acre parcel of land awarded to Colonel Arthur Campbell in 1759 for his service in the French and Indian War with the British Army. Nearly a century later, German immigrants laid the foundation for the Germantown known and loved today.
New residents to Germantown will love the neighborhood for its extensive collection of shotgun and camelback homes, wide selection of bars and restaurants, and the ongoing renewal of the area. Home prices start in the $60s, and peak in the $200s.
Around 4,000 reside in Germantown, which was once nicknamed “Frogtown” due to the frequent flooding from Beargrass Creek (and subsequent malaria outbreaks); the creek would later be routed through a deeper concrete canal, solving the flooding issues. Mean commute time to work is 18 minutes, and four local routes operated by TARC serve the area.
The 385 acres of land making up Germantown are bounded by East Breckinridge Street to the north, Goss Avenue, Steve Magre Alley, and Beargrass Creek to the west, Barret Avenue and Beargrass Creek to the east, and Eastern Parkway to the south. The neighborhood is a few minutes away from I-64, I-65, U.S. 60 and U.S. 150, connecting Germantown residents to Moline, Mount Vernon, Fort Knox, St. Louis, Nashville, and Indianapolis.
Germantown’s major park is German-Paristown Park, a 0.83-acre park with playground equipment for the little ones to enjoy. Nearby Shelby Park offers a few more amenities, such as tennis courts, basketball, and picnic areas.
New Germantown residents will not be lacking for food or drink once they move into the homes of their dreams. The Post, located in a former VFW hall, combines fond military memories with large slices of pizza and a wide selection of adult beverages. Kaiju, meanwhile, wears its dive bar status on its heart, mixing Japanese pop culture with signature cocktails and live entertainment. Sandwich and barbecue fans have Check’s Cafe and Smoketown USA, seafood lovers can head over to The Fish House, and Eiderdown warms the hearts and bellies of many a Germantown resident with their European-inspired comfort food.
As for the social calendar, it seems like there’s always something going on in Germantown every day. The first Friday and Saturday of June brings the Germantown-Schnitzelburg Blues Festival, two warm evenings of hot blues at the intersection of Hickory and Burnett, all for a good cause. Art lovers, meanwhile, have the Schnitzelburg Art and Craft Festival in late April, only days before the biggest sporting event in Louisville, the Kentucky Derby. Beer fans can hang with the German American Club at their monthly Biergarten. And of course, with bars like Nachbar, Barret Bar & Grill, and The Monkey Wrench, there is live music galore on most nights.
