Anchorage thrives beneath a canopy of oak and magnolias. Here historic homes, country estates, and smaller homes sit side by side. In spring neighbors walk, bike, or jog past flowering dogwoods, forsythias, jonquils, and tulips. Citizens, young and old, involve themselves with theatre groups, city government, and community school projects. Anchorage - a community dedicated to family, neighbors, its school, the environment, its pets, and horses - is more than a place to drop anchor. Anchorage is a safe harbor: a twenty-year stay is common; fifty years is not uncommon.
The city has long been known as home of some of the area's wealthiest citizens, though the large old estates have mostly been divided up and many new, still upscale, houses have been built in the area, especially since 1977. Part of the city is designated as the Anchorage Historic District, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
Papa John's Pizza founder John Schnatter is a resident and owns about 6% of the land in Anchorage, including much of the city center. He restored an interurban rail station, three historic buildings and built a fourth in a similar style in the city's center, with a bank, an upscale restaurant, and a hiking trail, which opened as the Anchorage Trail in June 2008. In an interview, he told the Courier-Journal that his goal was purely to 'preserve the city's character'. This estate home is a lovely spot to simply relax, sip a mint julep and watch the sun set! If you enjoy sitting by an outdoor fire with friends....this is the spot for you!
