On Thursday, May 28, the Kentucky Historic Preservation Review Board will meet in at the Paul Sawyier Public Library Frankfort to consider a number of nominations to the National Register of Historic Places. One will be the nomination for the Roscoe Goose House at 3012 South 3rd Street in Louisville. Prepared by Savannah Darr, a recent graduate of the U of L history M.A. program, it chronicles the history of the residence built successful jockey and 1913 Kentucky Derby winner Roscoe Goose. Savannah began the nomination while taking professor Daniel Vivian’s “Introduction to Historic Preservation” course during the fall 2013 semester. She continued her work and submitted the nomination to the Kentucky Heritage Council last year. Having it placed on the agenda for a state review board meeting is a major accomplishment, and we look forward to seeing the house officially listed in the near future.
