A building rich in history and architectural beauty

Constructed in 1929, the building was originally known as the Lincoln Bank and Trust Company.  With its beautiful Art-Deco architectural design, in 2005 the building was restored and transformed into what is now The Gillespie; the premier venue in the Louisville area for the most lavish weddings, galas, and other events.
