Setting the Stage, In 1778 George Rogers Clark along with 150 militia men and 13 families rafted down. the Ohio River They eventually landed on Corn Island near what is modern day Louisville. Clark and the militia men then went on to run a campaign against the British to conquer the. Northwest Territory, The families that Clark left behind then built Fort on Shore at the foot of present day. 12th street Due to the threat of both Native American and British attacks all residents lived in. forts until the war was over On May 1 1780 Virginia Governor Thomas Jefferson signed the. Louisville town charter and another 300 families moved to the area. On June 1 1792 Kentucky became the 15th state At the time Louisville was only a. fraction the size of Lexington however with the invention of the steamboat river travel and trade. became much easier and between 1810 and 1830 Louisville s population grew by 300 to. 10 000 overtaking Lexington as Kentucky s largest city. In the 1850 s the Louisville and Nashville Railroad was commissioned and by 1859 was. up and running connecting the two cities This led to another population boom which caused. the city to expand to some of our oldest neighborhoods like Portland and Shawnee and also south. to what we now call Old Louisville, On August 1 1883 the Southern Exposition opened The expo featured many agricultural. and technology inventions of the time and was similar to the World s Fair It was originally. going to be open for 100 days however it was so popular that the city decided to stage it. annually until 1888 More than a million people visited during the first year. The Expo was located in what eventually became St James Court and Belgravia Court. and featured the largest display of Edison light bulbs to date more than 4 600 as well as more. than 1 500 other commercial and mercantile attractions The Expo bought with it a new wave of. people including the Brennan family, Mr Thomas Brennan moved to Louisville with his wife and family in 1883 for the. Southern Expo to receive an award for his invention the sawmill In 1884 he bought the Brennan. House from a tobacco merchant who had built the house in 1868 named James Slaughter Francis. Ronald who then sold the house to the Brennan s for 12 000 Mr Brennan had 27 patents in his. name in his life all in agricultural technology Mrs Brennan was also college educated and. spoke 7 languages All 8 of the Brennan children had extraordinary achievements in medicine. music and business The house remained in the family for 86 years until 1969 when the last. remaining Brennan family member passed away, Mr Conrad was the epitome of the self made man He moved to Louisville from France.
in the mid 1800 s and started a tannery Business was successful enough that he was able to. expand quickly The Conrad s built the Conrad Caldwell House from 1893 1895 The house was. to be Mr Conrad s retirement home to show the community how he had done in life However. ten years after he moved in to the home he had a heart attack and passed away Mr Caldwell. had lived next door to the Conrad s for years and had fallen in love with the house So after Mr. Conrad s death the Caldwell family bought and renovated the house.
