the Water Co. &
Odd Fellows Hall
The Water Co. block is an important part of Downtown Louisville's historic street-scape that creates an unique sense of place in our community. Bounded by Second, Third and Liberty streets and Muhammad Ali Boulevard this block once had several historic buildings some of which are now gone and along with them a part of our city's unique history.
The Water Co. block was first listed on Louisville's Top 10 Endangered Places list in 2005 because of its significance and the opportunity for future development. The Louisville Water Co. buildings & Odd Fellows Hall remain on the block and we are asking OMNI HOTELS to:
- + choose sustainable development
- + choose to integrate the remaining historic buildings
- + choose to preserve Downtown Louisville's historic street-scape & sense of place!
