THE HISTORY OF
Louisville got its start when coal was discovered in 1877. Louis Nawatny, the man which Louisville is named after, broke up his farmland into city blocks in 1878, and people began to come out west. Many immigrants, including Italians, French, German, and Slavic people, started to call Louisville home.
Many men worked in local mines, having their sons join them after their fourteenth birthdays. At the cross of Front and Main Street, people could find everything that supported their daily lives, and trains from Boulder, Eldorado Springs, and Denver passed through the town sixteen times a day. Mining life was hard on the locals of Louisville, which led many men to go on strike. This friction eventually led to a disagreement between the miners and their bosses, which left bullet holes in many childhood homes.
Louisville was home to saloons, brothels, schools, churches, boarding houses, shops, and even a small theatre. A lot of these buildings still stand in downtown Louisville, unchanged and a shadow of the town’s past. While the mines have been long closed, they remain beneath the city – a silent reminder of Louisville’s original start.
