Harvey’s on the Water, d.b.a. Rose Island Yacht Club, was founded in 1989 by William Harvey. The club is named after the Rose Island Amusement Park, which was located across the river at the peninsula at 14-Mile Creek. This amusement park was operational between 1923 and the flood of 1937, and served as a great place for Louisville residents to access by road, riverboat and ferry.
