KHS will dedicate Cabbage Patch historical marker
Kentucky Historical SocietyKHS to Dedicate Historical Marker to Honor Cabbage Patch Settlement, 1413 South 6th Street, Louisville, KY, on Thursday, November 18, 2010, at 5pmET/4pmCT.
By Laura Coleman
Frankfort, KY (November 4, 2010) - The Kentucky Historical Society will dedicate a historical marker at 5pmET/4pmCT, on Thursday, November 18, 2010 to honor the Cabbage Patch Settlement, 1413 South 6th Street in Louisville, KY. The marker is sponsored by friends of the Cabbage Patch and the St. James Court Association.
The Cabbage Patch Settlement was founded in 1910 as a Christian-based charity to serve the children and families of the Cabbage Patch, as the neighborhood was known at the time. The original mission was located on Ninth St. Moved to Sixth St. in 1929. Louise Marshall, the settlement's founder and great-great-granddaughter of Supreme Court Chief Justice John Marshall, served as the director of the organization until her death in 1981.
Alice Hegan Rice, author of the 1901 novel "Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch," was a member of the charity's founding board of directors. Her former home on St. James Court shares an alley with the settlement's present site. In 2010, Cabbage Patch Settlement House celebrated 100 years of profoundly changing the lives of local children and families.
The Kentucky Historical Marker Program, administered by the Kentucky Historical Society in cooperation with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, commemorates historical sites, events and personalities throughout the state. Through the program, the wealth of Kentucky history is made accessible to the public on markers along the state's roadways. The markers are on-the-spot history lessons that add drama and interest to the countryside for native Kentuckians as well as tourists.
For more information about the program, contact Becky Riddle, Kentucky Historical Marker program coordinator, at 502-564-1792 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
