St. James Court Louisville Kentucky
The first thing that comes to mind for most when you hear “St. James Court” in Louisville, Kentucky is the famous fountain.
That famous fountain was replaced in the 1970s to what we see now.
Before St. James Court was known for its fountain, it was known to house the Southern Exposition of Art, Industry and Agriculture back in 1883.
The main building, which at the time had the largest display of electric lighting, was disassembled in 1887 and subdivided into three walking courts and center green spaces.
These courts host an annual art show and have been since 1957.
The St. James Court Art Show takes place on the first weekend of October each year and brings in the largest crowd for any event in Kentucky.
