Stratton Hammon

Stratton Hammon (1904-1997), a Louisville-born architect, studied art and mechanical drawing at Du Pont Manual High School and designed his first house at age 16. He went on to become one of the most popular architects of the 20th century, featured in magazines such as Good Housekeeping. Today his homes are sprinkled like jewels in neighborhoods throughout his hometown.

In this Louisville Life profile, we interview Winfrey Blackburn, one of the authors of Kentucky Homes of Stratton Hammon, published by Butler Books.

Hammonís work has also been the subject of an exhibition at the Speed Art Museum and a lecture at the Filson Historical Society, of which the architect was a member.
