LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —
Another resource I plan to tap for the history of our county is The Logan Ewell Stories, a column that appeared in the Sentinel Echo for several years. Mr. Ewell’s roots were deep in Laurel County and he wrote eloquently of the past and the people of the area.
You may want to visit the historical society and look through the hundreds of pictures, books and journals the society has collected. It is not something that can be done in an hour but it will be well worth your time.

Interviews with Laurel Countians over the age of 80 have begun. Subjects are only asked to answer a few questions about their childhood and youth and their connection to Laurel County. If you or someone you know would like to participate, contact the society at 606-864-0607 during library hours, or 606-224-3767 at other times. Email the historical society at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jan Sparkman at email@example.com.
