York : Statue

Statue of York

A heroic-size bronze statue of York is located on the Louisville Belvedere at Fifth and Main Streets. Accomplished by Louisvillian and nationally known sculptor Ed Hamilton, it was championed by the Falls of the Ohio Lewis and Clark Bicentennial Committee and commissioned by the city of Louisville in 2002. It was dedicated on October 14, 2003, the 200th anniversary of the meeting of Lewis and Clark in Louisville for the expedition and as part of the opening ceremonies of the Falls of the Ohio Lewis and Clark National Signature Event. Kelly Hoggard of Louisville Metro Television made an award-winning documentary entitled "The Rediscovery of York" about the statue and York's life.
