The Brennan House Historic Home and Gardens


"Recently voted one of Louisville's top 10 favorite buildings by the Courier-Journal (Nov 14, 2004)."


NOW is the time to become a Friend of the Brennan House Historic Home and Gardens! Membership at all levels provides the financial support so crucial to maintaining this unique landmark and preserving it for generations to come. Located in the heart of downtown Louisville, the Brennan House is the last of the magnificent homes that once filled the Central Business District before industrialization and expansion of the city. Built in 1868 by Francis Ronald, a tobacco merchant, the house was purchased and occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Brennan and their eight children in 1884. The family remained planted here until 1969, when the house and all of its furniture, art and memorabilia became the property of a nonprofit corporation. OUR COLLECTION IS ENTIRELY ORIGINAL. This makes the Brennan House unique locally and very rare nationally.

We ask that you help us now to preserve the past for the future.

Although many things have been accomplished, the Brennan House still needs assistance in the following areas:
A new exterior sign, rear interior plastering, 1894 piano restored, exterior lighting rear, interior painting, kitchen and bath upgrades, painting of the rear exterior, iron fence restored, clock restoration, second staff member and advertising costs.
Your membership will help make these things possible.
