It is a showcase of early 1900's lifestyle and craftsmanship-a beautiful and hospitable setting for weddings, special events, and meetings. The House offers tours Wednesday through Friday and on Sunday at 1 pm and 3 pm and on Saturday at 11 am, 1 pm, and 3 pm. Also by appointment. Adults-$10 Seniors-$6 Students-$4 Children under the age of 8 are free. We also offer other various discounts. Our tours last just over an hour as the trained docent guide takes groups on a walking, informative tour of the home's 3 floors set up with original family pieces circa 1908. « less

The most striking building in the St. James area, the house is neat from the outside and within. I've seen many weddings there and plenty of tour buses pull up for a quick look. If you want to see neat architecture in Louisville you better be in the Old Louisville area, anyway, so why not stop by?

I've lived in Kentuckiana all of my life and never knew such elegance was tucked away in downtown Louisville! Gorgeous architecture and decor. Our guide was the great great granddaughter of the Caldwell's. She was so friendly and informative. Interesting way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Recommend for tourists and locals alike!

The home is absolutely beautiful! The decorations are lovely and a large amount are original. The tour was interesting and gave us a nice idea of how both the Conrads and the Caldwells lived in the home. If you enjoy the Victorian architecture of Old Louisville, you'll enjoy seeing this home!

The tour was one of the best tours we have ever had of an historical home! The docent was the great grand daughter of one of the owners and she was fascinating.

The Conrad Caldwell House is a lovely example of the architecture of the period, and a time capsule of history back to the Southern Exposition. Visit the CC House, and the Old Louisville Information center to get more walking tour and other tour information.

During our trip to Louisville, we stayed at a breathtakingly beautiful B&B in the Victorian Historic District (see our review of The Samuel Culbertson Mansion) and became so instantly enamored with Louisville's Victorian Historic District that we ended up touring every historic home that was open to the public to tour. The Conrad-Caldwell House is a MUST see. As yearly... More

The tour guide Beth and another girl (forget her name) were so energetic and informative about the history of the home. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would recommend this... More

Handicapped elevator to all three floors. This house shows the opulence and grandeur of the late 1800's into the 1900's. Most of the items are of this period but not necessarily from this house. We highly recommend a visit and be sure to take the guided tour.

This place is in Old Louisville, which is a Victorian home lover's dream. The museum is beautiful and interesting. It is especially pretty at Christmas time.

Beautiful turn-of-the-century home. LOTS of history behind both the house and it's inhabitants. Very refreshing to have tour guides who are connected with the original families, full of knowledge and a true love of the home. Tour guides were pleasantly accommodating and patient with young children. (I was with a group of Girl Scouts, and the guides took the time... More
