The year of 1937 was a memorable year for Louisvillians. Many historical events were witnessed by our growing city,
such as the opening night for the Louisville Orchestra, War Admiral making history by winning the Kentucky Derby, and
Tragedy striking with "The Great Flood." Yet, perhaps one of the most lasting historical moments was the opening of Joe's.
For a man named Joe Keal, 1937 was the year his dream became a reality. Joe's dream was to open a tavern in the backyard of
his parents' home in Lyndon. Soonafter, it was not an unusual sight to see Joe hitching up his horse and buggy to bring waiting passengers
from the railroad station to his home oasis. Before long, Joe's became the local meeting place where all Lyndon natives came to relax
and spin some tales, as it remains today.
The original bar that Joe Keal built still stands as a living testament to his success. Over time, the rest
of the bar has been added to provide Joe's patrons with a home away from home.
