LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Castleman Statue on Cherokee Parkway celebrated 100 years with a parade of horseback riders, residents and vintage automobiles.

The procession aimed to recreate the one that happened during the 1913 dedication of the statue. This November marks the 100th year that General John Breckenridge Castleman and his horse Carolina have watched over the Cherokee Triangle.

"Castleman meant a lot to this neighborhood," said a resident. "Castleman was one of the original park commissioners that created the Olmstead parks of Cherokee, Iroquois, Shawnee, Southern Parkway and Tyler Park."

General Castleman also worked with the landowners to build the neighborhoods that surround those parks.
