New Albany hosts a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Underground Station

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Space is rather tight at Bread and Breakfast in New Albany, and the back of the house is no exception.

But for Laura Buckingham, the small, quaint space on Main Street is a big step up from her days of selling bread on the side of the road.

"From there, we quickly opened a bakery, and then the bakery turned into a restaurant,” Buckingham said. “I looked around one day and saw that we were completely out of tables, standing-room only on a Saturday and Sunday."

The sudden sounds of construction across the street may have been the sign she needed to expand.

Tripling in size with four times the amount of seating, the new Bread and Breakfast location is one of several businesses moving to Underground Station.

Owned by Carter Management Company, the development could be a new destination point for New Albany residents with new restaurants, retail and live music coming soon.

"As things were building up, we wanted to jump in on that and be a part of that and see new businesses have a chance to thrive," said Andy Carter, manager of the Underground Station complex.

The company is reviving an area with potential and a rich history. The oldest building at Underground Station was built in 1834.

"It got its name from the local underground railroad that came to the local church down the street,” Carter said.

Sew Fitting was the very first tenant at Underground Station.

"We went from 850 square feet to over 2000,” Sew Fitting owner Cisa Barry said. "It's great to see more people come in and also businesses be able to expand and grow."
