Historic Kaelin's goes up for auction next week

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville landmark is going on the auction block.

Known for years as Kaelin's -- where legend has it the cheeseburger was created -- and more recently as Mulligan's, the restaurant at the corner of Newburg and Speed, will be sold off.

The eatery across from St. Agnes Church closed in November. "Southern Living" magazine wrote in 2005 that the cheeseburger was invented at Kaelin's in 1934.

The 8,500-square-foot property includes a two-story rental house next door that will be sold separately.

All of it will be auctioned as a walk-out, meaning buyers can leave that day with various restaurant, bar and coffee shop equipment in hand.

It all happens May 14 at 12:30 p.m. at 1801 and 1811 Newburg Road.
