Lincoln Memorial at Waterfront Park

Back in early June of this year, the Lincoln Memorial at Louisville’s downtown Waterfront Park was officially opened.  The site is designed to detail the life of Abraham Lincoln, particularly his Kentucky roots.  There are four bas-relief sculpture  that show Lincoln at various stages of his life.  The stone was chipped away to make for a 3D appearance.  A stone amphitheater was created that features quotes by Lincoln.  The centerpiece of this section of the park is a 12 foot statue of Abraham Lincoln sitting on a rock facing towards the river.  The statue and the four bas-relief sculptures were created by noted Louisville sculptor Ed Hamilton.  If you haven’t checked out this section of Waterfront Park yet, make the effort to do so.  Its a wonderful addition to the park.
