Boyhood home of Brandeis to be auctioned off

LOUISVILLE, KY. (AP) - The boyhood home of the late Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis will be auctioned off later this month in downtown Louisville.

The original home was built in 1864 and Brandeis lived there from the age of 8 or 9 until he left Louisville as a teenager.

The property has been expanded through the years and is currently being used as medical offices and a lab.

Bill Menish, who is overseeing the auction, said Friday the property has an appraised value of $3.15 million.

The auction is set for April 24 at the property.

Brandeis was appointed to the Supreme Court in 1916 and served on the nation's high court until 1939.

His name remains a fixture in his hometown. The University of Louisville's law school is named for Brandeis.
