Excerpts from the
Mountain Echo
Laurel County's
first newspaper

 

By far the most popular feature from the LaurelCoKY AREA mail list, these excerpts run the gamut from real "news" of historic interest (opening of the first bank in Laurel) ... to "vital statistics" of genealogical interest (births, deaths, marriages) ... to tidbits that can best be described as outright "gossip"!!!

The Excerpts from the Mountain Echo  are reprinted here with

the permission of the Laurel County Historical Society.

Note: These are excerpts from the books.
The actual books have more information
