Brief History of Jeffersontown and Its People
Tuesday, May 12
Brief History of Jeffersontown and Its People  (Program)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
1000 South Hurstbourne Parkway (at Linn Station Road), Louisville, KY


Presented by Beth Wilder

This presentation will focus on important Jeffersontown events and people beginning with the first settlers in the late 1700s. The area around present-day Jeffersontown had become the last logical resting place for people traveling through to the region of the Falls of the Ohio. Many had already secured grants for land allotments while others only had the hope to establish a home in the wilderness. Abraham Bruner had the foresight to organize a village there, and many pioneers opted to stay in the verdant area that would become known as Jeffersontown, rather than travel further west. Beth Wilder will share information on the evolution of the town; notable individuals and families; historic sites and buildings; and the transportation issues that affected growth of the town. She will answer questions following her presentation.
Beth Wilder manages the Jeffersontown Museum along with John Ulmer, President of the Jeffersontown Historical Society, and his wife, Donna. The museum is located in the Jeffersontown Library Building but is a totally separate operation. It is a popular place for school class visits, as well as senior groups and adult daycare.  The museum contains many pictures, documents, relics and placard explanations regarding the history and people of Jeffersontown. The museum is open Monday – Friday, 10am – 5 pm (excepting holidays).  Admission is free, and all are encouraged to visit.

1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
1000 South Hurstbourne Parkway (at Linn Station Road), Louisville, KY


Presented by Charlie Arrington

This Program is about how it seems that years that have the last number as "7" seem to have had something interesting happen in Louisville aviation history, such as Charles Lindbergh flew into Louisville in 1927 and that the airlines moved from Bowman Field to the new Standiford Field in 1947. We will take a look at many of these "7" events.
Aviation history has long captivated Charlie Arrington from Louisville. He has contributed articles about aviation for nationally distributed magazines and written text for a number of air shows.
