(It’s Not) About Us

Originally published in 1950 by the Louisville Chamber of Commerce for “Mr. Businessman and Mrs. Housewife” (yikes, we really said that!), Louisville Magazine is now for all of us — people full of complexity and contradictions, just like our city. Since 1993, the magazine has been independently owned, in pursuit of a more honest portrait of Louisville. We believe in reporting that puts depth over speed, writing that surprises and photography you’d frame over your mantel.


From Algonquin to Buechel, Clifton to downtown, the East End to Fern Creek, Germantown to Hikes Point — we’ll stop at the letter H, but you get the idea — we want a Louisville where everyone feels seen, known and needed.
