The History of Buechel
The history of Buechel dates back to 1791, with the arrival of George Hikes, a Revolutionary War veteran. Hikes traveled down the Ohio with his wife from Pennsylvania on a flatboat. He built a large farm as well as the first grist mill, saw mill, and wool-processing machine in the area. Currently, “Hikes’ Lane” is a road that runs through his former property, some of which still stands. At the time, the area was known as “Two-Mile Town” due to its location two miles south of the city of Louisville. The area continually grew, thanks to its location alongside the major state highway, Bardstown Road.
90 years later, in the 1870s, Buechel got its name from John Buechel, a Swiss immigrant and cabinet-maker who bought a tavern-hotel and post office on Bardstown Road. The tavern-hotel was known to be the “halfway” point between Louisville and Bardstown, a welcome respite for road-weary travelers. While Buechel’s property is long gone, the name has stuck.
Today, Buechel is heavily developed and populated, in part due to the arrival of the GE plant in the 1950s and other nearby industrial operations. That being said, there are two significant green spaces in the 2.5 mile area: Buechel Park and Rest Haven Memorial Cemetery.
Buechel offers a diverse variety of cuisines. Top-rated restaurants and eateries include Jamaican Jerk Center, Pasha’s Mediterranean, Eden & Kissi, Kathmandu Kitchen and Bar, Borsalino Cafe and Deli, Track’s Bar and Grill, Arno Pizza, The Great Room, Brew and Sip Coffee Bar, My Cafe, and Wacky Willy’s Diner, located in Bill Collins Ford Lincoln of Louisville.
Popular attractions and venues in Buechel include Robben’s Roost Roller Skating Rink, Off The Rails Tasting Room and Wine Depot, Chocolate and Nut Kingdom, Progress Park Airstream Resort and Event Venue, the Southeast Family YMCA, and the West Buechel Community Center.
