The Brown Hotel, on the “magic corner” of Fourth Avenue and Broadway in Louisville, is one of the city’s most beloved historic landmarks. Since its opening in 1923, the Brown Hotel has been a cornerstone of countless historic events, including the Great Flood of 1937. The hotel is well known for its gracious southern hospitality and elegant ambiance.
Through meticulous restoration work, the owners of the Brown have sought to recapture the former elegance of the building. In early 2003, Northern Building Products manufactured 1,300 windows to retrofit the exterior of the Brown.
