The photo at left is that of a statue of King Louis XVI of France (1754-1793) located at the corner of Jefferson and 6th Streets and across from the city hall in Louisville, KY. The city was named after him in 1780 because of his support for the colonies during the American Revolutionary War.
The statue was sculpted by Valois in 1827 and was given to Louisville by her sister city, Montpellier, France. It was dedicated July 17, 1967.
