Louisville is a city in Stark County in the U. S. state of Ohio. The population was 9,186 at the 2010 census, it is part of OH Metropolitan Statistical Area. On October 8, 1834, Louisville was formally settled by Henry Lautzenheiser, from Germany, Henry Fainot, a French Huguenot; the city was named after Lautzenheiser's son and called Lewisville, Ohio. The name of the town was considered appropriate because of the fact that it was surveyed by the similar-sounding name of Lewis Vail; when the post office was established in 1837, with Sam Petree as its first postmaster, it was discovered Ohio had a Lewisville, so the spelling was changed to Louisville. Within Louisville's early days, the town competed with the fellow Nimishillen Township community of Harrisburg for growth. Harrisburg flourished due to its accessibility as a stagecoach stop between Canton, Alliance and Pittsburgh. Meanwhile, Louisville grew, due to its location upon the east branch of the Nimishillen Creek, which flows toward Canton.
However, when the Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne and Chicago Railway was laid through Louisville in 1852, Louisville began to grow more than Harrisburg, which struggled with the difficulty of hauling its main product, wheat, by barge. Today, Harrisburg is now an unincorporated community, marked only by a handful of businesses and a Roman Catholic parish. On April 1, 1872, Louisville was incorporated as a village, with George Violand elected as Louisville's first mayor. By the late 19th Century, Louisville contained many growing businesses, including: a plow manufacturing company, a wooden mill, a brewery, a basket factory, flour mills, tanneries, a brick yard, two hotels, a shoe factory, a number of taverns/saloons. Three of these businesses, Star Mill, Town Tavern, the Mainstay Bed & Breakfast, remain open to this day. Furthermore, many of the buildings constructed within Louisville during this time period are listed upon the National Register of Historic Places; such locations include Saint Louis Catholic Church, completed in 1870 and dedicated in 1878, the city's historic downtown district bordered by Chapel Street, Lincoln Court, St. Louis Court, Nickelplate Street, East Gorgas Street, Center Court.
The city's current weekly newspaper, The Louisville Herald, was first published in 1887. For a brief time, the town had a Roman Catholic college, established by the Reverend Louis Hoffer, located across the street from St. Louis Church. Called Saint Louis College, it opened in 1866 under the operation of the Diocese of Cleveland; the Congregation of St. Basil of Toronto assumed control of the college the following year, Saint Louis College closed in 1873, due to lack of funds and transportation difficulties for the students. After serving as an all-girls academy and a school for deaf mutes, The building became an orphanage under the guidance of the Vincentian Sisters of Charity; the Saint Louis Orphan Asylum closed in 1925, became a hospice for the elderly, named St. Joseph's, in 1927; the old red brick building was razed in 1975, as St. Joseph's moved across the street from St. Thomas Aquinas High School. A McDonald's is now located upon the site; the early 1880s saw the arrival of telephone toll lines to Louisville.
Louisville's first public street lights, twelve oil burners, were lit downtown for Christmas 1884. In 1894, a public water system was established for Louisville, a sewage system installation followed in 1910; the town's Main Street became Louisville's first paved road in 1914. In 1960, Louisville's residents voted for the village to become a city. Louisville is known as the "Constitution Town"; this is due to the fact that a resident of Louisville, Olga T. Weber petitioned for the establishment of Constitution Day for the United States in 1952, her lobbying led to the Ohio General Assembly proclaiming September 17. as a statewide "Constitution Day", under a law signed by then-governor Frank J. Lausche; the following year, Weber urged the United States Senate to declare the week of September 17–23 as "Constitution Week". Her request was approved by both the Senate and the United States House of Representatives, signed into law by President. On April 15, 1957, Louisville's City Council declared itself "The Constitution Town".
The city continues to hold a "Constitution Week" celebration annually during the week of September 17. Louisville is located at 40°50′14″N 81°15′33″W; the east branch of Nimishillen Creek flows through the city.

Louisville is a home rule municipality in Boulder County, United States. The city population was 18,376 at the 2010 United States Census. Louisville began as a rough mining community in 1877, suffered through a period of extraordinary labor violence early in the 20th century, when the mines closed in the 1950s, made a transition to a suburban residential community. CNN/Money and Money magazine have listed Louisville as one of the 100 best places to live in the United States, ranking it among the top 100 in 2007, 2009 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017; the town of Louisville dates back to the start of the Welch Mine in 1877, the first coal mine in an area of Boulder and Weld counties known as the Northern Coalfield. The town was named for Louis Nawatny, a local landowner who platted his land and named it for himself. Incorporation came several years in 1882; the Northern Coalfield proved to be productive, some 30 different mines operated within the current boundaries of Louisville, though not all at the same time.
During the years of peak production twelve mines were in operation in Louisville, including the Acme Mine whose two million tons of coal came from directly beneath the center of town. The presence of many independent mining companies in Louisville saved the town from becoming a "company town", wholly owned and dominated by a single mining company. Coal from the Northern Coalfield was sub-bituminous and could not be transported long distances because of problems with self-combustion. Mining took place in winter months since, the period that demanded fuel for heating. During the summers the miners played in local baseball leagues, with the home field named "Miners Field". A great deal of mythology has arisen around the stories of tunnels that connected saloons throughout the city, but these have proven to be unfounded and undocumented. Instead, during labor conflicts many citizens found refuge in dirt basements to avoid errant bullets being fired from mine compounds into the city. From 1910–14 the Northern Colorado Coalfields were in the midst of a strike by the United Mine Workers and the Rocky Mountain Fuel Company based on working conditions and working hours.
When miners walked out on the Hecla Mine northeast of Louisville the company hired the Baldwin–Felts Detective Agency to guard the mine compound. A machine gun and spotlight were placed in a tower on the Hecla property, when miners took out their frustration by shooting their guns at the compound, the detectives responded by returning their fire by randomly firing at the town; the coal remaining in the Northern Coalfield became uneconomical to mine, the last coal mines operating in Louisville closed in the 1950s. In 2001, the city became a home rule city; the home rule debate came about when Xcel Energy announced plans to replace old power line poles with much larger steel towers. While the city wanted the power lines to be buried, it discovered it lacked the authority to force Xcel to do this, or to create a taxing district to fund such. In recent years, Louisville has been recognized in several publications as one of the best places to live and raise a family in the United States: In July 2005, CNN/Money and Money magazine ranked Louisville fifth on their list of the 100 best places to live in the United States.
Criteria included financial, education, quality of life and culture, weather data. In May 2006, Bert Sperling & Peter Sander, authors of the book Best Places to Raise Your Family: The Top 100 Affordable Communities in the U. S. ranked Louisville first on their list of best places in the U. S. to raise a family. In August 2007, CNN/Money and Money magazine again ranked Louisville third on their list of the 100 best places to live in the United States. In July 2009, CNN/Money and Money magazine named Louisville the Winner and ranked first on their list of 100 best places to live in the United States. In July 2011, CNN/Money and Money magazine again named Louisville the Winner and ranked first on their list of 100 best places to live in the United States, the second time it has graced the top slot of the magazines annual listing. In July 2012, Family Circle magazine placed Louisville among the top ten "Best Towns for Families". Based on a survey of 3,335 municipalities with populations ranging from 11,000 to 150,000, the list does not assign ranks within the top ten.
In 2015, Money Magazine named Louisville fourth in "Best Places to Live in America."

University of Louisville
The University of Louisville is a public university in Louisville, Kentucky, a member of the Kentucky state university system. When founded in 1798, it was the first city-owned public university in the United States and one of the first universities chartered west of the Allegheny Mountains; the university is mandated by the Kentucky General Assembly to be a "Preeminent Metropolitan Research University". The university enrolls students from 118 of 120 Kentucky counties, all 50 U. S. states, 116 countries around the world. The University of Louisville School of Medicine is touted for the first self-contained artificial heart transplant surgery as well as the first successful hand transplantation; the University Hospital is credited with the first civilian ambulance, the nation's first accident services, now known as an emergency department, one of the first blood banks in the US. Between 1999 and 2006 Louisville was one of the fastest growing medical research institutions according to National Institutes of Health rankings.
As of 2006, the melanoma clinic ranked third in among public universities in NIH funding, the neurology research program fourth, the spinal cord research program 10th. Louisville is known for its Louisville Cardinals athletics programs. Since 2005 the Cardinals have made appearances in the NCAA Division I men's basketball Final Four in 2005, 2012, 2013, football Bowl Championship Series Orange Bowl in 2007 and Sugar Bowl in 2013, the College Baseball World Series 2007, 2013, 2014, 2017, the women's basketball Final Four in 2009, 2013, 2018, the men's soccer national championship game in 2010; the Louisville Cardinals Women's Volleyball program has three-peated as champions of the Big East Tournament, were Atlantic Coast Conference Champions in 2015 and 2017. Women's track and field program has won Outdoor Big East titles in 2008, 2009 and 2010 and an Indoor Big East title in 2011; the University of Louisville traces its roots to a charter granted in 1798 by the Kentucky General Assembly to establish a school of higher learning in the newly founded town of Louisville.
It ordered the sale of 6,000 acres of South Central Kentucky land to underwrite construction, joined on April 3, 1798 by eight community leaders who began local fund raising for what was known as the Jefferson Seminary. It opened 15 years and offered college and high school level courses in a variety of subjects, it was headed by Edward Mann Butler from 1813 to 1816, who ran the first public school in Kentucky in 1829 and is considered Kentucky's first historian. Despite the Jefferson Seminary's early success, pressure from newly established public schools and media critiques of it as "elitist" would force its closure in 1829. Eight years in 1837, the Louisville City council established the Louisville Medical Institute at the urging of renowned physician and medical author Charles Caldwell; as he had earlier at Lexington's Transylvania University, Caldwell led LMI into becoming one of the leading medical schools west of the Allegheny Mountains. In 1840, the Louisville Collegiate institute, a rival medical school, was established after an LMI faculty dispute.
It opened in 1844 on land near the present day Health sciences campus. In 1846, the Kentucky legislature combined the Louisville Medical Institute, the Louisville Collegiate Institution, a newly created law school into the University of Louisville, on a campus just east of Downtown Louisville; the LCI folded soon afterwards. The university experienced rapid growth in the 20th century, adding new schools in the liberal arts, graduate studies, engineering and social work. In 1923, the school purchased what is today the Belknap Campus, where it moved its liberal arts programs and law school, with the medical school remaining downtown; the school had attempted to purchase a campus donated by the Belknap family in The Highlands area in 1917, but a citywide tax increase to pay for it was voted down. The Belknap Campus was named after the family for their efforts. In 1926, the building that would be dedicated as Grawemeyer Hall, was built. In 1931, the university established the Louisville Municipal College for Negroes on the former campus of Simmons University, as a compromise plan to desegregation.
As a part of the university, the school had an equal standing with the school's other colleges. It was dissolved in 1951. During World War II, Louisville was one of 131 colleges and universities nationally that took part in the V-12 Navy College Training Program which offered students a path to a Navy commission. In the second half of the 20th century, schools were opened for business and justice administration. Talk of Louisville joining the public university system of Kentucky began in the 1960s; as a municipally funded school, the movement of people to the suburbs of Louisville created budget shortfalls for the school and forced tuition prices to levels unaffordable for most students. At the same time, the school's well established medicine and law schools were seen as assets for the state system. Still, there was opposition to the university becoming public, both from faculty and alumni who feared losing the small, close-knit feel of the campus, from universities in the state system who feared funding cuts.
After several years of heated debate, the university joined the state system in 1970, a move orchestrated by Kentucky governor and Louisville alumnus Louie Nunn. The first years in the public system
Louiseville is a town in the Mauricie region of the province of Quebec in Canada. It is located on the north shore of Lac Saint-Pierre. Louiseville is twinned with Soissons in Cerfontaine in Belgium; the area was part of the la Seignorie Rivière-du-Loup. This seignory was formed in 1665 by Intendant Jean Talon and granted in 1672 to Charles Dugey Rozoy-de-Mannereuil, officer in the Carignan Regiment; the seignory was thereafter known as Rivière-Mannereuil for some time. In 1714, a mission was formed by the Récollets who dedicated it to the patronage of Anthony of Padua. In 1722, the Ursulines owned the seignory and attempted to change the name to Saint-Antoine-de-la-Rivière-Saint-Jean but the settlement became known as Rivière-du-Loup or Rivière-du-Loup-en-Haut after the seignory or local river. In 1816, its post office opened. In 1845, the Parish Municipality of Rivière-du-Loup-en-Haut was formed, abolished two years in 1847, it was reestablished in 1855 as Saint-Antoine-de-la-Rivière-du-Loup, named after the parish patron and the seignory.
In 1878, the main settlement separated from the parish municipality and formed the Village Municipality of Rivière-du-Loup. Just one year it was renamed to Louiseville in order to avoid confusion with another town called Rivière-du-Loup in the Bas-Saint-Laurent region; the new name was a tribute to Princess Louise, the third daughter of Queen Victoria, who had planned to visit the Mauricie that same year. On January 1, 1989, the parish and village municipalities merged again and became the Town of Louiseville.
