Patrick Cudahy statue rededicated
descendants of city founder on hand
CUDAHY-The statue of city founder Patrick Cudahy was rededicated July 4th, 65 years after it went up at the entrance of Sheridan Park.
Cudahy was born on St Patrick's Day in Kilkenny Ireland and months later his family emigrated to Wisconsin where the brothers built a meat packing empire.
Descendants of Patrick Cudahy were on hand for a special ceremony, including grandson, Milwaukee Philanthropist Michael Cudahy.
There are also plans to restore older trails in Sheridan Park which is celebrating its centennial.
