1381-1391

Notes Specific to this block:  The addresses 1311 through 1321 are vexingly problematic.  We think that the early addresses 1313, 1315 and 1317 may be the present day addresses 1315, 1317 and 1319, because this triplex stylistically seems to have been built at the same time, and the three all appear in the directory around the same date (1893/1894).  The problem here is that the first of these addresses, 1313, disappears in 1909.  If 1313 was a separate building from the present 1315-1319, it would have had to have stood where the present day alley is located....or not.

Perhaps the present 1311 is a newer house on the site of 1311 & 1313, or incorporates one or the other.  Or 1311 is actually the old 1311, and another building north no longer exists (there is a large enough gap for that.).  But under those scenarios, you'd have to believe the southernmost portion of the triplex 1315-1319 was not built until 1911, even though it is a mate top the northernmost part of the building. 

And perhaps there were additional address number changes made just to throw us off.

Additionally, the now vacant lot at 1321 is large enough to have accommodated both 1319 (the one appearing in 1911, maybe not the present day 1319) and 1321.  There are enough cuts in the retaining wall here to support this possibility.

We have not found any one explanation that perfectly explains this row of houses.  We're only making best guesses based on house style and other physical features, but be aware that its possible we could be off by an address or two on some of these.  Debbie Richards Cash at Landmarks once warned us that the early addressing system on Old Louisville was a mess, and a lot of weird things went on back then.

By the way, there are more questions on the other end of the block which you can read about by clicking on those addresses.


 

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.

Accuracy:
*
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.
