On Saturday, December 3rd from 2-4 PM as part of the Olde Tyme Christmas Celebration on Frankfort Avenue we will have local historians Sam Thomas and Deborah Thomas on hand to sign copies of the updated edition of Crescent Hill Its History and Resurgence and Winfrey Blackburn for his new book, Country Houses of Louisville.
At long last, acclaimed historian and author Sam Thomas has updated his classic history of the Crescent Hill neighborhood. Sam's original book was published in 1978 and called Crescent Hill Revisited. The small printing quickly sold out, and the book has been out of print and hard to come by for many years. Sam Thomas and his wife, Debbie, spent years enhancing, updating and adding to the text and photographs to produce the new book titled Crescent Hill: Its History and Resurgence.
Country Houses of Louisville, 1899-1939 presents an in-depth view of 32 spectacular country estates in Louisville, Kentucky, and the families and architects who built them.
