In 1991 the Knott County Gingerbread Festival Committee began
particular family to be honored during September's Festival.
The manner in which these families are selected by the Gingerbread
Committee is procured through the use of the local phone directory with
the families having the most phone numbers receiving plurality.
Festival Committee releases the name of the family to be honored and
the theme for the year's festival in the local paper so that the
businesses and organizations, such as ours, can corroborate their
window displays and
One year after the Historical Society's founding, we began honoring
these families with a
proof publication of the family's history containing up-to-date data, a
museum exhibit, photo
albums, window displays on Main Street, and other events to coincide
with the Knott County Gingerbread Festival activities. We
have worked harmoniously with the Gingerbread Festival and these
families to bring honor upon their
ancestors since 1995.
