The Archdiocese of Louisville chooses RJ Thieneman
In 1985, the Archdiocese of Louisville selected RJ Thieneman Realty Group to develop the land that was formerly home to the St. Thomas Seminary as The Woods of St. Thomas. As members of the Catholic Church, the Thieneman family took pride in paying homage to the school by not only naming the development “The Woods of St. Thomas,” but also by naming a major connecting road, between Highways 22 and 42, “Seminary Lane.”
