On Sunday, April 8th, the Friends of Eastern Cemetery hosted a dedication for the historical marker in front of Eastern Cemetery. The Kentucky Historic Society administers the Kentucky Historical Marker Program in cooperation with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. There are over 2,400 historical markers across the commonwealth that tell Kentucky’s story through places, people, and events. The Friends of Eastern Cemetery applied for a historical maker to tell the history of Eastern Cemetery and recognize some of the people buried there. The Friends of Eastern Cemetery are thrilled to be Kentucky Historical Highway Marker #2532!
The Gov. Isaac Shelby Chapter of the Kentucky Society of the Sons of the American Revolution led the Pledge of Allegiance for the dedication ceremony. Dr. Andrew Patrick, Community Engagement Coordinator at the Kentucky Historical Society; S. Brandon Coan, Louisville Metro District 8 Councilman; and Andy Harpole, President of the Friends of Eastern Cemetery, spoke at the ceremony.
