Ribbon Cutting Held for the Fayette County Archives Office

Last Thursday, March 14, 2024, county officials and residents gathered at the newly renovated Archives building located at West Market Street in Somerville for a ribbon cutting ceremony. County Commissioner Betsy Rice and other volunteers have worked on this project for the last 8 years. The Archives building is created to store county records that cannot be destroyed and it also involved rescuing records from the basement of the courthouse. These county records will be available for citizens to review. Betsy Rice stated she and County Mayor Skip Taylor visited other counties to look at their archive process and also had help from the state to set this up. The archives are located in the former school board office on the court square. She thanked the county officials for all their help with the records and also the volunteers. She stated the late Mrs. Joy Rosser was a great help with the historical records and was sad that Mrs. Rosser could not see this now. Pictured holding the ribbon is Commissioner Rice and Mayor Taylor is holding the scissors, along with elected officials, Chamber members, and residents.
