Profiling local history

The Ironton Tribune’s annual Profile magazine came out on Friday and this year’s focus was on the people, places and businesses that make up Lawrence County’s past and its present.

Several of the articles were created with the help of community members who provided pictures and history that might not have otherwise seen the light of day outside of the museum or the library. And we thank them greatly for the contributions.

With one Profile magazine out, The Tribune is already planning next year’s edition.

If anyone has ideas or materials that can help create 2021’s edition, please stop by our offices or email us.

Whether it is more local history, or a past theme like “Everyday Heroes,” “A Day in the Life,” we would like to hear your input as to what you would like to see in next year’s edition.

Lawrence County has a rich history and and wealth of resources to draw from.
