Earlier this year, we spotted a pretty large stone wall in the Irish Hill neighborhood on the corner of Cooper and Hull Streets. The thing was, the wall was covering the sidewalk. On our last trip over to the neighborhood yesterday, we found the wall mended and again standing proud. Unfortunately, many of Louisville’s grand old stone walls have suffered similar fates of disrepair and gravity over time and it’s not hard to find one that’s ready to go heaving into the sidewalk in neighborhoods across the city. At least Cooper Street is nice and tidy again after the spill.
