The Olmsted

The Splendid Estate of Olmstead, nestled within the picturesque landscapes of Louisville, Kentucky, graces an expansive 81-acre expanse, once the cherished grounds of the Masonic Homes of Kentucky. The architectural marvel, a creation brought to life between the years 1925 and 1927, emerged under the skilled guidance of Joseph and Joseph, a visionary architectural duo. Their ingenious design positioned the edifice along the outer perimeter of the estate, while the heart of the property cradled the dining hall, a vibrant epicenter of activity for the denizens of yesteryears. Subsequent refinement of Olmstead’s blueprint was meticulously crafted by the esteemed Olmstead Brothers, renowned custodians of natural sanctuaries.
