Central Park Bed & Breakfast on 2021 Old Louisville Holiday Home Tour

Robert and Eva Wessels own Central Park Bed & Breakfast, a historic Victorian mansion and one of eight stops on this year’s Old Louisville Holiday Home Tour. Though the three-story house at 1353 S. Fourth St., has received updates for modern-day accommodations, it has been around since 1884 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Full of history

“Vernon Price was the owner, along with his wife and family,” Eva explained. “He was a vinegar manufacturer, (and) the president of the Saturday Evening Post, (and) he was on the L&N Railroad board. He was a mover and shaker of the day.”

Eva said the home next door is thought to have belonged to Price’s mother-in-law, which would explain certain similarities between the two mansions. The sun detailing on the interior of the Wessels’ home, for example, matches the design on the outside of their neighbor’s house. The fireplaces in both also feature the same Rookwood tile from Cincinnati.
