A funny thing happened after a visit to Riverside, The Farnsely-Moreman Landing house one day.
The historic home built on the Ohio River and now owned by the city of Louisville as one in a string of parks was impressive enough, masterfully restored and cared for by the employees and volunteers at the park. But once I headed home and started looking into the history of this well-preserved old mansion, I quickly came to realize I had missed another house that, though it was very near by, was in a different state of preservation entirely.
It was a few months later until I once again found myself once again at Riverside, determined to find the Aydelott-Rosenberger house, which lay a little ways off the beaten path. And after following a familiar trail that led down a shady old country lane to a suspiciously quiet clearing, I managed to find it.
Check out the history of the house and the family that built it in my next post, linked below. Don’t miss the old photos!
