If your farmhouse style home is in one of the historical neighborhoods in the Louisville area, you aren’t the only one that has a say in what you do to your home. The Historic Landmarks and Preservation Districts Commission, who protects the look of Louisville’s historical neighborhoods, also has a say as to what you can and cannot do to the outside of your home.
The main focus of this commission is that homeowners who live in designated historic neighborhoods are maintaining the historical look of their homes. They do this by requiring that homeowners get pre-approval for all changes that they plan on making to the outside of their home (front and back).
