Event to discuss effect of '37 flood on Southwest Louisville

On Thursday, October 7 at 7:00 PM, Rick Bell, author of "The Great Flood of 1937," will present a slide show and talk at Riverside, the Farnsley-Moremen Landing about the impact this devastating event had on southwest Louisville. Did you know that 30 of the 33 miles of Dixie Highway from Louisville to Muldraugh Hill were under water? This event is FREE, but reservations are recommended. For more information on this program, call 502/935–6809.

Special thanks to my friend Steve Magruder at Louisville History & Issues for this info.
