Slugger Walk of Fame

As you stroll down Louisville’s historic Main Street, don’t miss the Louisville Slugger Walk of Fame. This artful extension of Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory takes the museum onto the sidewalks of the city.

Players inducted into the Louisville Slugger Walk of Fame are enshrined with a bronze caste of the Louisville Slugger model bat they used, and a bronze home plate with highlights of their career. And what careers! These players rank among the greatest ever to grip a bat. All were under contract with Louisville Slugger.

The Louisville Downtown Civil Rights Trail

The Louisville Civil Rights Trail was opened to the public in 2013. It includes 11 markers created by renowned sculptor Ed Hamilton, and located throughout downtown Louisville detailing sites and events which took place in the mid-20th century as part of the struggle for civil rights and desegregation in the city.

Rejuvenated South Fourth Street Alley Renamed To Music Alley

The alley between Mercury Ballroom and the Louisville Public Media building is Downtown Louisville’s latest example of “tactical urbanism” and was renamed today to Music Alley. The privately owned alley recently underwent a makeover that includes all-night market lighting, painting of the concrete surface, plantings, and the addition of a fenced enclosure with Alley Gallery artwork to provide on-site storage of furniture.
