Louis Brandeis Boyhood Home Up For Auction
The Louisville boyhood home of the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis will be put up for auction this week.
The historic home at 310 East Broadway, was built in 1864 and the property has been expanded over the years.
It currently houses doctors’ offices and labs.
Bill Menish with SVN Auction Services says the sale will be held Thursday at the site.
“Every single property has a story to tell, some are greater than others and this is one that you see it when you drive by you know there’s something special about the building if you just take a moment to read that historic sign out front or do a little bit of digging, you’ll find that it’s a significant property in the history of Louisville,” he said.
Brandeis served on the Supreme Court from 1916 until 1939. The University of Louisville law school is named for him.
Menish says the property has an appraised value of $3.15 million.
