Mayor Greg Fischer announced the city plans to move a statue of the Confederate officer and President of the Board of Park Commissioners John Breckinridge Castleman from the Cherokee Triangle neighborhood and the George Dennison Prentice statue from outside the Louisville Free Public Library.
Mayor Fischer said appropriate relocations will be explored. The city is, for example, in conversation with Cave Hill Cemetery about moving the statues to their family burial grounds in Cave Hill. There are legal and financial issues to address with the moves--like, for Castleman, a review by the Cherokee Triangle Preservation District. If no other suitable sites are found, the statues will go into storage.
