Old Louisville, The Pink Palace

The Pink Palace Located at the corner of St. James and Belgravia Courts, the Pink Palace, built in 1891, was not originally a home, but an exclusive Gentleman's Club and Casino for the residents of the Court .The Pink Palace got its name in the 1920s when it was painted this color by the Woman's Christian Temperance Union, its owner at the time.Its current owner has of late stirred a bit of controversy when he decided to repaint the building a very bright pink with lavender trim. The work only just began when a stop-work order was issued, and now the owner, landmarks commission and neighbors are negotiating a "suitable pink" for the building.
