Notable Louisville Neighborhoods and the People Who Put Them on the Map is a series presented by the Filson Historical Society that connects people with our past in order to help shape and inform our future. This series seeks to connect people with history in a meaningful, relevant way and will feature the Butchertown Neighborhood in early 2020. Lectures will occur over a three-month period with the first featuring the "History of Butchertown Neighborhood," on Tuesday, March 24, 2020 in partnership with and at Waterfront Botanical Gardens. Light refreshments and garden walk will begin at 5:00 p.m. followed by a discussion with Tom Owen from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m in the botanical gardens' Graeser Family Education Center. Participants will be provided a self-guided tour package of Butchertown and encouraged to come back at their leisure to view historical points of interest, eat, and shop while enjoying everything Butchertown has to offer.
