About Us


Owner Alex Langston began welding and working with rod iron upon graduating from high school in 2001. He worked in other welding shops for six years before deciding to open his own where he could be free to produce the custom, hand-made work he aspired to create.

Back Alley Ornamental Iron opened in June 2006 in the back of his house in Old Louisville downtown. Customers who wanted to see him came through the back alley to get to his shop; thus the name of the business was created. In April 2007, the shop moved to its current location.

At Back Alley Ornamental Iron, we pride ourselves on our one-on-one consultations with our customers. Our highly skilled faculty will do its best to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations.

Our customers have the option of bringing in their own designs, and depending on the application, we will use 100 percent of the original or work with them to modify their design to our specifications. We can also create our own designs to suit the individual customer.

If you want your home or business to be a true work of art, please contact Back Alley Ornamental Iron.
