Louis XVI town

by Jorge Sanchez - 4 years, 4 months ago

While travelling around USA in the year 2008, I stopped in Louisville where I walked for the whole day and while walking in Louisville downtown I smiled when I saw a sign of a well known face, welcoming visitors. The face belonged to the Coronel Sanders, the founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken fast food restaurants, which are very popular in Spain and worldwide. Louisville was nice town. I read in a metallic plaque in front of the City Hall that the town is so named for French king Louis XVI. The plaque also says that Louisville, at the falls of the Ohio, was founded in 1778 by George Rogers Clark. A monument devoted to French king Louis XVI was found not far from that plaque. Fourth Street Live! Was a funny street in the downtown with a monument in form of guitar advertising Hard Rock café. I spent the night is a Salvation Army and the next day I left to St. Louis, in Missouri.
