Second Street

The "New" DuPont Manual High School

This short photo tour of Second Street actually begins on Lee Street (incidentally named for Robert E. Lee) with duPont Manual High School, one of Louisville's finest schools, and a magnet school for the whole city.  The complex takes up an entire block at Second and Lee, between the University of Louisville and the Youth Performing Arts Center.  Second Street then continues north, a long shady avenue lined with proud Victorian homes and cozy gardens.  Click on a picture to see its enlargement, as well as more information
