The historic structure is definitely at-risk. Here are the details:
In 2009 the Olmsted Conservancy and the Metro Parks created a master plan for Hogan’s Fountain. The plan is part of a continual development of our parks in Louisville. Though the plan included the “proposed” removal of the teepee pavilion. The teepee is the only structure of it’s design in the country and is unique to Cherokee park, Louisville and the Hogan’s Fountain area of the park. It has a history involving tens of thousands of visitors over the year and deserves the dignity it provided the park and it’s guest for so many years. Now the history and the future blend.
The history of this fine architectural piece needs to be preserved as does the structure. Helps us to make the future a historical one.
It’d be a shame to lose it.
