Join us for a catered lunch and an informative talk with speakers on assorted topics.
This luncheon features:
“The Pointe’s Past: the Ohio Street Neighborhood to today’s Botanical Gardens”
From the layout and geography and usage of the Pointe in the 19th century, to contemporary development in Butchertown, learn more about Beargrass Creek and the people and stories of the Ohio Street neighborhood up through the mid 1940s. Slaughterhouses, the Heigold house, and that old city dump may all come into play.
Noted historian and Louisville “pied piper,” Tom Owen is former Metro Council President. He is a full professor at the University of Louisville and has worked at the institution since 1968. He holds a Ph.D. in American History from the University of Kentucky and a bachelor of divinity from Methodist Theological School in Ohio.
