The Larger Context
This is the proposed sight for the public sculpture.
Preston St. & Shelby St. Median near Harrison and Clarks Ln.
The route the buffalo followed from the salt licks of Bullitt County
to the crossings at the Falls of the Ohio River for hundreds of years
resulted in the natural phenomenon of a “road”
being cut into the otherwise ‘untamed’ wilderness of Kentucky.
This path was followed by natives and settlers alike and
is a significant contributor to the eventual footprint of our community
as we know it today. The St. Joseph’s Area Association is highlighting this fascinating and important part of our natural and local history by
commissioning a public art sculpture to commemorate and honor this part of our heritage.
