Jannuci House

Historic Moments
This month in conjunction with the Historic Preservation Commission, we are launching a new feature that will give you a snapshot of our heritage through the stories behind some of the amazing historic buildings that still stand in Louisville. We hope you enjoy.

Jannuci House
1116 LaFarge Avenue

The Janucci House, also referred to as the Ginacci House, is a rare brick example of the modest residences constructed by local coal miners and is associated with the town’s Italian heritage. A rear addition housed a spaghetti-making machine used to supplement family income during the summer months of reduced mining activity. In 1910, it was the home of siblings Joseph, Ernest, and Cleonice Jannucci, and later was the residence of Joseph and his wife, Philomena.
