  • Handy House should be treated like family

    To the editor:

    I recently had the opportunity to tour the Handy House. I was astonished by its craftsmanship and wonderful condition. As a remodeler, I worked extensively in the Old Louisville area during its revitalization period of the 1970s and ‘80s and I never started work in a building that was in as good condition as is the Handy House.

    I know there are those who would like to see this house gone but after having seen the beautiful condition of this old home, I don’t understand why anyone would want to take it down.
