New Proposed Park for Downtown Louisville

Happy Birthday Park

Louisville council members are working with a local developer on plans to build a park that would honor the Hill sisters- two teachers that are thought to have originally written the tune to "Happy Birthday to You" in the 1880s. According to the article it would be called "Happy Birthday Park". It also states that the Hill sisters were born in Anchorage, but lived in South Louisville when they wrote the tune.

Other areas have been named around the city to honor these sisters and their local history, but this would by far be the most impressive display of their influence on not only our city, but the world.
