The Louisville Base-ball and Skating Park Company
From the Louisville Courier-Journal, February 17, 1866
The skating festival is still kept up hereabouts. Large parties of young ladies and gentlemen yesterday resorted to the several parks which nature has provided for them. At Zane’s Pond, between Seventh and Eighth streets, there was an especially large congregation of fair and gallant skaters. We are glad to know that, among the young people of our city, the girls in particular, there is an increasing fondness for this graceful and health-promoting exercise. When the Base-ball and Skating-Park Company, recently chartered by the Legislature, shall have fitted up their grounds as proposed (which will be done next winter), we expect to see Louisville compete for the ascendancy, in the West at least.
