Audubon, Louisville


Audubon, Louisville

Audubon is a neighborhood in Louisville, Kentucky, USA. Its boundaries are Clarks Lane to the north, Poplar Level Road to the east, Preston Highway to the west, and the city of Audubon Park to the south. The smaller city of Parkway Village is surrounded by Audubon. George Rogers Clark Park, the site of a cabin owned by the parents of George Rogers Clark, is a prominent feature of the neighborhood.

The northern part of the neighborhood was developed by Harold W. Miller in the 1940s, taking advantage of the popularity of nearby Audubon Park, but subdividing the land into small lots and building inexpensive homes. Audubon Park unsuccessfully tried to block creation of the neighborhood. The southern part of the neighborhood became the site of John J. Audubon Elementary School with the remainder being developed as the Glenafton subdivision in the mid 1960s.
