Preservation Kentucky, Kentucky Tourism, JRA Architects and Louisville Water Company are proud sponsors of Tour120, a new statewide program that showcases historic buildings in Kentucky.
Our beautiful Crescent Hill Reservoir and Gatehouse as well as the Louisville Water Tower are among the 120 historic sites featured in the program.
During a press conference last week, Preservation Kentucky Board of Directors Chair Grady Walter, Kentucky Tourism Commissioner Kristen Branscum, JRA Architect Tim Graviss and Louisville Water Vice President Kelley Dearing Smith gave remarks on the significance of the program in the community.
“This is a perfect fit for Louisville Water Company. Some people may say, 'Why in the world would a water company partner with this effort called Tour120?' Well, for more than 159 years, Louisville Water has always been more than just a water utility,” Dearing Smith said.
After the announcement, guests got a sneak peak inside the Gatehouse. Located on Reservoir Avenue, it will be open to the public as a part of Tour120 on May 18 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is free. The WaterWorks Museum will be open at Louisville Water Tower Park (3005 River Road) during the same time. Regular museum admission fees will apply ($5 and under).
