At the corner of Mulberry & 7th Streets stands this gigantic old house that is not to be missed when in Louisville. It’s presently for sale, I believe, but is in immediate need of stabilization. It would be a real shame to see this house lost. The original wooden shingles are even visible beneath the mid-20th-century roof and a quick scan of the realtor listing shows a beautiful staircase and interior that isn’t beyond saving.
Patty Romer Guill: My great-grandfather James Cain Little built the house in the 1870s or 80s. My grandfather sold it around 1920 (don’t know the buyer) when he built the red brick house on the corner of Green and 7th.
Kenneth McDaniel: My Grandmother (McDaniel) owned the house from about 1940 til her death in 1985. From my understanding, it was built in 1867-70. She had converted the right side of the porch (as you look at it) into her ‘beauty salon’ which was her primary source of income.
Update: This house was struck by lightning on 20 July 2020 and was completely destroyed.
