About The Lilac Hill


The Lilac Hill

The property features a Sears catalog home, barn, and two sheds built in 1937 by the Dietrich family who had been in Louisville for many years.

Lilac Hill is the dream and vision of my father, Don Maxon, who had a passion and love for gardening and landscaping. As a young man he fell in love with arboretums and botanical gardens, so when this run-down, over-grown 80-acre farm plot came on the market he quickly bought it up with the dream of establishing his own private arboretum. He saw through all the rusted-out farm equipment laying around, the unkempt trees and undergrowth that shrouded every view, and realized there was beauty to be had with some effort.
