General Notes:
* Resident occupations or notes have been added if known.  If you can supply more information on these houses or their early residents, we'd love to hear from you.  Email information@oldlouisville.com
*Years marked as "Vacant": can have several explanations or possibilities.  Obviously the house could actually have been vacant, or the family may have been temporarily away during canvassing, the address was between tenants, or the directory made an error (no one home & no one to ask).  In some cases it may indicate a new building awaiting its first residents, or one ready to be demolished to make way for a newer building.
* Many short-term residents (especially renters, boarders or apartment house tenants) have been omitted from this list.  For more complete listings see our History section and look for the appropriate Excel file.
* Grayed out listings:  A building at this address that possibly, probably or definitely no longer exists. 

About the dates:
After 1921, years are sampled 1927, 1933, 1938.  A + sign after a date reminds us that the resident may have also lived at this address before or after these dates.
* 1884 is the earliest date we can easily find records for these buildings.  Any homes noted to be occupied in 1884 are often older than that.  But it should also be kept in mind that an address record may represent more than one building over the years.  For example, a bungalow style house (early 20th C style, usually teens to 30s), is probably a replacement for an earlier building on the same site, especially where the address record goes back several decades before. Click here for a brief guide to house styles
* Years are inclusive.  For example, a resident listed at an address showing1890-1892  was listed in the directory at his address for three years: 1890, 1891 and 1892.

There is no absolute guarantee of the accuracy of this information. 
Addresses in red mean there may be some question as to the matches between pre-1909 and present addresses.  While these are usually correct, further research may be needed.  After 1909, almost all addresses should be correct.
* Errors can often be found in original or secondary source material, and probably we made some along the way as well. 
* Corrections are welcome and deeply appreciated, but please be kind.  Many hundreds of hours of work and quite some expense have gone into researching these compilations, and harsh scolding only discourages further work.
