Happy Birthday Birthplace

The plaque is gone! Only the stone base remains. Bummer.

[Heather Himli, 07/21/2020]

Fans of the Hill Sisters, who wrote the song "Happy Birthday to You," have wanted for years to build a park in a better Louisville location and move the plaque there. There's also been a lot of construction in the area around the plaque, so maybe it was stored for safekeeping.
