Join us on a leisurely walking tour of Louisville’s famous Whiskey Row and Historic East Main Street. Beginning at the Cressman Gallery in the Traughber Public Parking Garage at First and Main, Tom Owen will zig-zag us along Main and Washington Streets through the old Belknap Hardware Company complex, show us the world both above and below the Clark Memorial Bridge, and circle the old Big-4 Railroad Freighthouse (now Slugger Field). This rapidly developing area just above the YUM! Center has experienced abandonment and demolition but stories abound and an emerging future awaits. We will conclude the afternoon with a wine reception at an undisclosed and mysterious venue.
The walking tour will begin at 3:00 p.m. at the Cressman Garage. There is a charge of $25 for members ($30 for non-members). You may reserve your place by visiting www.filsonhistorical.org or by calling The Filson at (502) 635-5083.
Reservations are required.
