Louis D. Brandeis Home
Built in 1864, this was the boyhood home of first Jewish U.S. Supreme Court Justice, Louis D. Brandeis. It was here, in his formative years, that Brandeis developed the democratic social philosophy that would later be reflected in his own reform activities. It was in this house, at the age of nine, that he taught a slave to read and write.

Louis D. Brandeis
Brandeis believed in honoring the people who helped him succeed. During his 23 years on the bench, he stayed interested in his home town. His influence, and gifts of money & personal papers, stimulated growth of the Univ. of Louisville Law School. He named collections after former high school teachers.
