Traces of Laurel: Laurel County churches

(Continued)

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

I’m looking forward to going through the material on local churches that may be found in the Laurel County Historical Society.  It’s sure to be interesting.

Don’t forget about the Society’s Oral History Project.  If you or someone you know is over 80 years old and would like to share information about his/her long life with future generations, call us at the number given below.

Also, on October 5, Dr. John Fox of Friends of the Boone Trace, will be overseeing the re-dedication of the Hazel Patch marker, first dedicated in 1950 and later damaged.  This ceremony will take place at the amphitheater at Levi Jackson State Park at 1 p.m.  Speakers, re-enactors, and a tour of some of the Laurel County markers are part of this event.  Everyone is invited to attend.  Watch this newspaper for further information.
