Brennan House Holiday Tours

Victorian Holiday Tours

at The Brennan House Historic Home

“Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childhood days, recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth and transport the traveler back to his own fireside and quiet home!” – Charles Dickens


Come marvel at the beauty of The Brennan House Historic Home during Victorian Holiday Tours hosted by Preservation Louisville, Inc., from noon to six pm on Saturday and Sunday December 1st and 2nd. 

Let us transport you to a time where horse-drawn carriages carried Louisville’s high society to Macauley’s Theater to take in the latest play by Oscar Wilde or George Bernard Shaw. When Fifth Street was lined with homes that spoke to the elegance, grace and ease of the times.
