Historic Moments

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

Tomeo House

Tomeo House
1001 Main St.

Built in circa 1908 by Felix and Lena Tomeo, this house is currently a part of the Louisville Historical Museum. The home was lived in, and then rented out by the Tomeo family until the 1940’s. After being used for storage, the home was sold to the city of Louisville in the 1980’s and subsequently turned into a portion of our Museum campus.
