Crews refurbish the inside of Louisville Water's Original Pumping Station

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Restoring one of Louisville's National Historic Landmarks is nearly complete -- and we're getting a sneak peak.

Crews have been busy refurbishing the inside of Louisville Water's Original Pumping Station at Zorn and River Road.

But scraping off nearly 40 coats of paint and re-doing the electric, air, and heating isn't all the work being done on the more than 150-year connection between Louisville Water and the community.

Jim Brammell, Louisville Water President & CEO, said, "We're rebranding this site as Louisville Water Tower Park and we're thinking that's a real tribute to the founders."

Visitors will soon be able to tour a new WaterWorks Museum, located in the west wing of the Original Pumping Station.

The Museum will feature pictures, movies, and memorabilia, as well as explore the company's contributions to water delivery through its innovations in science, engineering, and architecture.
