What Bert Has To Say About Louisville Metro Area

Louisville (pronounced lou-ah-vul locally) is an industrial, shipping, and commercial center. It has a prosperous river-town character with a distinct Southern accent. Downtown contains a few modern buildings, but the skyline is indistinct overall. The shady historic districts east and south of town with gracious Southern-style Victorian era homes are far more interesting.
