You Probably Had No Idea That This Tiny Kentucky Park Is So Historically Significant

If you’re walking down Main Street in Louisville, it’s no doubt that you’ll spot several things that will catch your interest. There’s the cast iron facades, the world’s largest baseball bat casually leaning against a building, and a giant, golden replica of the David statue in front of a building that has red penguins on its roof. With all of this to investigate, it might be easy to pass up the most historically significant thing that exists on Main Street, and that’s a tiny little park on the corner of 7th and Main called Fort Nelson Park.
