LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Students from the University of Louisville are taking people on a tour of Louisville history. The students are opening our eyes to something we see all the time but never really look at.

They are taking pictures of what they call “ghost signs.” The "ghosts" are the old signs on brick buildings around the city that mark old businesses. The students are taking the pictures before the signs disappear to preserve them for future generations.
