We Support Your Museum
Our mission is to stimulate broad-based support for local history and the Louisville Historical Museum and to encourage the development of the Museum through fundraising, advocacy and education.
Restoring an Historic Stained-Glass Window
For anyone visiting Louisville over the past 100 years, the Blue Parrot Restaurant was a familiar name and sight. You definitely saw their neon sign at the corner of Main Street and Pine Street, and you may have eaten a plate of their famous spaghetti!
Those more familiar with the restaurant will remember the iconic stained glass window that was located near the front entrance and visible from Main Street. Unfortunately, that window, an important piece of Louisville history, was damaged in the recent renovation of the building.
The window was recently donated by the new owners of the building to the Historical Museum, and The Louisville History Foundation is raising money to help preserve this beautiful piece of stained glass.

Thanks to the participation of dozens of Louisville residents and a talented and dedicated team of oral history program volunteers, the Louisville Historical Museum has a rich collection of filmed interviews documenting Louisville’s unique history.
