City of Louisville Uncovers an Important Point in History



The City of Louisville was originally surveyed in 1832-1833. The only original survey point was marked at that time by a pair of rock at a point that is now located under Spring Avenue near the intersection with Mill Street. In 1904, these stones were unearthed and a metal wagon spindle was installed and encased partially in concrete to mark the location. Prior to Tuesday, the last time this survey point was uncovered was in the Spring of 1917.

Marking the centennial of that event and upcoming street repairs made this an optimal time to uncover and recognize this critical location in Louisville's history.  It is the intent of the City to place a small manhole over the existing marker for future access and to place a historical plaque on Main Street near the intersection with Spring Avenue. Plans are still in progress, but there is expectations of some grant funds that can be matched by citizen's donation.

Alderman Dickie Caperton and Fire Department's Towne Retire

Retiring Ward One Alderman Dickie Caperton with his grandchildren


Retirement was the theme during Tuesday's (6/20/17) Board of Aldermen Meeting in Louisville. Mike Towne was recognized for his years of service to the Louisville Fire Department. Towne has served as a full time firefighter since 1999 and on a volunteer basis prior to that time.

This meeting was also the last for Ward One Alderman Dickie Caperton who did not seek reelection. Caperton has served on the Board for 12 years. It was an emotional time as Caperton reminisced and said farewells to many including fellow board members, department heads and Mayor Hill.

Caperton noted that he had never missed a meeting during his time in office and that he took pride in that accomplishment. "I love this city. No one loves this community more than I do."
