Description

Located as a floating station in Louisville, Kentucky, above falls of Ohio River.

The only inland Life Saving Station in the United States opened in Louisville in November 1881 as Station #10. Described as a two-story floating building that docked at the foot of Third Street, lobbying for this station began several years earlier due to dangerous conditions on the Ohio River at the Falls of the Ohio. The Louisville Courier-Journal regularly reported on the assistance given to Louisville’s river-going community by this station, whether by assisting with floating issues near the Falls, rescuing those who met with accidents on the water, or recovering bodies of those who met their demise on the river.

This coin measures 2.5″ x 1.75″ (63mm x 44mm)
