My husband and I are moving to louisville from ohio and I am trying to research neighborhoods. I am interested in oldham county because I hear they have really good schools. Now my question is about the diversity of the area. I am an african american woman and so is my husband, We want to live in a mixed community, I want my children be accepting of people of all races,I want to live in a place where we will not be judged by the color of our skin, and I don't want to feel out of place being the only black family in the neighborhood. So my question is, Is Oldham county predominantly white or is it a mixed community?

Thanks bunches

Oldham County is very caucasian, but very open. I am a white male baby boomer. People of all races are invited and welcomed by Oldham County people. In my opinion, we only expect people to leave their shoulder chips at the door, embrace responsibility, and respect for other people. The only reason we recognize color in this county is when people of color tell us they are. My church is a phenominal example of just how color blind this county is. I own the largest independent real estate firm in the county and I would love to have more diversity, but I can't find qualified candidates because of the lack of population diversity. So, before you say no to Oldham County, come see, you'll like it.

Thanks so much for the input I will definitely it check out, and since you are a real estate agent I was hoping you wouldn't mind sending me some info on the area and maybe some house listings, or if you have a website sending me your web address so I can check it out. I really appreciate your help!:

There is a virtual tour of Oldham County on my website, but in respect for non-advertising on this blog, I will direct you to a website that fully encompasses Oldham County, offers links to my firm's site and many other real estate sites including those of my competitors. You will find links to other Oldham businesses, governments, and of course the school system. Please feel free to PM me too.

Please check out: Welcome to OldhamCounty.com!

Check out Hillcrest in Prospect. It is a big neighborhood, but a mix of families. African-American, Indian, European to name a few. Goshen Elementary, North Oldham Middle School & North Oldham High School are excellent as well.

I'm not a fan of the link Tom provided, even though it probably is the most complete community directory right now for Oldham County. Some of the data is "set and forget" and it really could use some updating. These links may help as well.
