County museum selling Bicentennial memorabilia

Published 12:00 am Thursday, June 26, 2003

In honor of the state's bicentennial, the Lawrence County Historical Museum is selling bell pulls.

The 4 by 6 foot tapestries feature places of local interest, such as the Scottown Covered Bridge, the John Campbell House, the Lawrence County Courthouse, the old State Route 93 tunnel, the bicentennial barn at Linnville and an iron furnace. At the very bottom is the Lawrence County seal.

"We (museum volunteers) got together and talked about what sites would be best," museum docent Lois Gillenwater said. "We tried to pick highlights and historic points in the county."

The $25 bell pulls are on sale during regular museum hours, 1-5 p.m. Friday through Sunday. The items will also be on sale at the Lawrence County Fair.
