Group seeking Elvis to rock for former jail

We are looking for the best Elvis Presley impersonator in Lawrence County.

As part of our fundraising event, the Historic Jail Preservation Corp. is holding a competition to find those individuals who think that they can do a great Elvis impersonation.

We will be awarding cash prizes to the three best.

This is just part of our plans as we try to raise the needed funds in our efforts to complete Lawrence County’s Bicentennial Project, the restoration of Burlington’s “Old Jail” which is the last standing structure when Burlington was Lawrence County’s county seat
