I am writing on behalf of the Letcher County Historical Society. A committee has been appointed in an effort to assist in making a vision a reality. We are currently raising money for our proposed Letcher County Welcome Center, Monument Park and Museum to be located on the bypass (across from the County Extension Center). This would also entail a Heritage Trail.
In order to begin our project, we are having a pledge drive and have been challenged to match or exceed the $50 pledge to begin this worthy and long overdue venture. This would benefit the county in many ways. It would afford the tourist a place to rest and reflect upon our great heritage. It would be a source of pride, as we honor a historical figure bigger than life and promote national attention on our artifacts/ antiques unique to our Appalachian culture.
Please make your tax deductible donation (check or money order) to the Letcher County Historical Society and memo it for the Monument Park/Museum Project. You can mail your donation to the above address.
We thank you for joining us in our vision CREDA J. ISAACS President Letcher County Historical Society
