Historic Preservation Fund

In November 2008, Louisville voters approved the nation’s first local sales tax dedicated to historic preservation. Through this Historic Preservation Sales Tax, voters chose to have a one-eighth percent tax collected, retained, and spent exclusively for historic preservation purposes within historic Old Town Louisville for a 10 year period. In 2017, the tax was again on the ballot and local voters extended the Historic Preservation Sales Tax through 2029.

Historic Preservation Fund grants and loans are available for residential and commercial landmarked properties.
