Caboose Receives Flag

The Caboose located on West Main that serves as a welcoming site for Louisville was recently upgraded with an American flag and pole.The idea was promoted through the Louisville Lions Club who provided the flag and the pole was funded through the generous donations of Robert and Amanda Taylor.

With the cooperation of the City of Louisville and some local businesses, the caboose was moved to the site in September of 2010.  The railcar was generously donated by the Lester Welch family and through the efforts of Choctaw Rails and Taylor Machine Works, it was moved and placed on a set of rails at the junction of W Main (hwy14) and Old Robinson Rd. The Main Street Beautification Committee has worked over time to remodel, paint and landscape the property.
