The East End



Popular neighborhoods like St. Matthews, Anchorage, Middletown, Hurstbourne, Prospect, and Jeffersontown make up Louisville’s East End. The unique flare each East End neighborhood has to offer attracts a wide variety of residents. St. Matthews, for example, is characterized by sturdy, traditional homes that vary in size and style and lined along friendly, tree-lined neighborhoods that blend a mix of retirees, young professionals, and children. Norton Commons, on the other hand, is brand new to Louisville and is one of the most unusual and charismatic communities designed to resemble an old-fashioned neighborhood with its own city center and living activities like block parties, holiday celebrations, and movie nights. Middletown and the more southeastern areas of Jeffersontown and Fern Creek both have a bustling and growing commercial scene and offer diverse housing options from apartment homes, to traditional and historic homes, to new subdivision developments.
