Charles Heigold House #1

When I made this photograph, the remaining facade of the Charles Heigold House stood on the banks of the Ohio River in Louisville. This is only the front wall of the house, the rest had been demolished. The Heigold house facade has since been moved to the middle of a traffic circle in Louisville.

The building, constructed in 1857, was built by a German Immigrant named Charles Heigold. Heigold built his house at a time of intense anti-immigrant sentiment in the US, so he covered it with patriotic inscriptions and images to show his loyalty to his adopted homeland.

"Hail to (President James) Buchanan, Now and Forever" is inscribed below the head above the upper door. President Buchanan is depicted in the portrait above the upper door. "Hail to the Union, Never Dissolve It" is inscribed elsewhere.
