Thanks for playing Know Your City! Let’s review the questions.
- In 2013, a NULU shop called WHY Louisville organized “The March of the Colonels,” a celebration of local artists and the creative culture in Louisville. What was unusual about the march?
- Who is the sculptor responsible for the 12-ft. bronze statue of Abraham Lincoln that’s located at Waterfront Park?
- On a tour of Old Louisville you will come across a distinctive tree at 6th and Park Avenue. What’s different about the tree?
And here are the answers:
- The march was a process of people dressed like Colonel Harland Sanders led by a life-size wax figure of Sanders riding a Hoveround.
- Ed Hamilton created the statue and the bass reliefs that illustrate four scenes that represent stories of Lincoln’s life-long ties to Kentucky.
- The gnarled and misshapen tree is called The Witches’ Tree—according to lore, the gathering place for a coven of witches. If you check out the Witches’ Tree today, you’ll find it adorned with beads, flowers and other small gifts.
