Dog of the Month

Downtown Dog
of the Month

Meet the lovely Cher Burgener, known around town, of course, simply as Cher. The 8 year old Weimeraner and Miniature Australian Shepard mix can often be found greeting clients, and occasionally her frenemy Jake, at N2Therapy on Main Street. You can also find Cher and her caretaker Julie visiting Vic’s many a morning. Make sure to say hi!

Historic Moments
This month in conjunction with the Historic Preservation Commission, we are featuring:

La Salla House

La Salla House
1124 Main Street

Built in circa 1896, this house was listed on the National Register in part because it was one of the few Louisville properties retaining its original outbuildings, making it an important example of a late 19th century urban residential complex.
