An old bell gets a new location

In a joint project between the Letcher County Board of Education and Mountain Comprehensive Health Corporation (MCHC), this iconic bell is back on School Hill in downtown Whitesburg, where it is easily visible from the intersection of Main Street and East Main. The bell stood for many years on the campus of the old Whitesburg High School, which is now owned by MCHC. “Thousands of students attended classes on the old Whitesburg High campus and fondly remember the bell,” said MCHC CEO Mike Caudill. “It’s all right with us if they’d like to come up and give the bell a ring every now and then.”
