History of Boone Square

Named for Mr. and Mrs. William Boone, who resided there in a Georgian mansion in the early 1850s, Boone Square was deeded to the city in 1891. It became one of the first Louisville parks designed by Frederick Law Olmsted in 1892. The park is also the site of the first organized baseball game in Louisville, which was played in 1865. The historic stone border wall is a unique feature.
