Met by a man named Justice and the Museum Curator on the 4th floor of an old courtroom. I purchased two bound books for genealogical purposes. The Museum focuses on the Hatfield and McCoy feud and Eastern Kentucky artifacts.

We stopped here on our H/M tour. It was only $5 to tour the museum. It might have been more interesting if I wasn't in the H/M mindset. It had only a few bits about the feud, and the rest was of other local history,...More
