Love That Louisville Slugger Museum and "Old Louisville"

Ted Williams
At first I wasn't sure if I would like a museum dedicated to baseball bats:)
But the tour, and the information on how professional baseball bats are made, was fascinating, and the museum was very fun!  I highly recommend it,
especially for those who are avid baseball fans.
"Babe" Ruth's Baseball Bat

"Babe" made a notch for each homerun he hit

Dane with the bat of Mickey Mantle

Ken Griffey, Jr. and me


Babe

A real slugger.

WOW! THAT'S A BAT!
It weighs 68,000 lbs (it's made of steel) and is 120 feet tall! It is an exact replica of Babe Ruth's 34" bat.


The Architecture in the area is amazing!





After touring the museum
we drove through
"Old Louisville"
The largest contiguous area in
the United States
of Restored Victorian Homes.
"Old Louisville is a National Preservation District, the third largest in the nation,
and the largest Victorian district in the United States."






















Leaving Louisville
One more architectural wonder
A very fun and interesting morning, and well worth the stop, if you're ever in the area!

You peeked my interest. We'll have to tour that museum next time we are in Louisville. Did you go to the arms museum across the street? Thats where we've spent our time. It is quite amazing. Phyllis

Phyllis,
You know, that (the arms museum) was where I was planning for us to go! But, this was at the end of our trip, on our way home, and we were all so tired, so I put the question to the family, and they all thought this Louisville Slugger museum was just what they wanted to do! (I think, too, we were all a little "history-museumed out".) My first reaction was not good I admit, but we really did have a wonderful time! Try it next time, especially since you've already been to the arms museum!

Aaaw that looks like you guys had sooo much fun!! Those old homes are BEAUTIFUL!!!! I would LOVE to one day own a home like that...aaaw wishful thinking :)

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas Wendy! Lots of fun time spent with family and of course even more time spent focusing on the Lord, his birth, his death and how you and your family will focus on him in the new year :) Thinking about and praying for you today!

Oh, thank you so much, Jami! I surely need your prayers and greatly appreciate them. We did have a lovely Christmas--much more peaceful this year, (I've been trying to identify "why" so I can repeat it next year:) and we are doing well. I hope you, too, had a wonderful Christmas and time with family and reflecting on the true meaning. Set any New Year's goals that you'd like to share?
Glad to have you back!
Lots of Love,
Wendy

Hey everybody!
I just found (and added) some great links, with info on walking tours through "Old Louisville" and info on some of the various types of architecture represented in the area. Again, if you're ever in Louisville, I think you would enjoy both the Louisville Slugger Museum and driving or walking through "Old Louisville," especially if you like old homes, as I do.
Blessings,
Wendy
