In the above photo Hikes Point is on the right
of Watterson Expressway and St. Matthews is on the left. The road crossing Watterson Expressway
to Hikes Point and St. Matthews is Breckenridge Lane.
These two communites share the same businesses, doctors, dentists, hospitals and restaurants because
each is only 5 minutes away from the other. John Rodgers, the Publisher of
Hikes Point News refers to the Hikes Point Loop as the circle of roads that encirles
both Hikes Point and the Dupont/Springs area. Start at the traffic light
at the intersection of Taylorsville Road and Breckingridge Lane. Drive down
Breckenridge Lane and cross the Watterson Expressway and continue on Breckenridge Lane
to Kresge Lane. Follow Kresge Lane to Browns Lane and turn right onto
Browns Lane. Continue driving on Browns Lane until
you arrive at Taylorsville Road, with the Good Will on the corner. Turn right
from Browns Lane onto Taylorsville Road
and continue until you reach the intersection of Taylorsville Road and Breckenridge
Lane. When you have traveled these roads as have been described, you have completed a drive on
the Hikes Point Loop.

|DISTRICT 11 COUNCILMAN KEVIN KRAMMER
History of Hikes Point Mural Celebration
The funds spent for this project were provided from the
Hikes Point taxpayers via a fund District
11 Councilman Kevin Krammer controls and and also from Nicklies Development, who owns the property and building on which the mural is being painted. Councilman
Krammer sought out the Center For Neighborhoods P.A.I.N.T. Program and was successful in winning their
interest and cooperation. Councilman Krammer seves Hikes Point with great skill and integrity.
As a community we should commend him for this great effort
to put Hikes Point in the spotlight and help us all remmeber our history as we move
forward into the future. This is another great example which illustrates Councilman Krammer's committment
to the families of Hikes Point. The mural is a beautiful piece of art that will help residence and visitors identify Hikes Point as a
beautiful area in our city. (More info and photos
