Pledges for the Land Fund

Due to the current economic conditions the Eastern Kentucky Heritage Monument is in a holding pattern, waiting for the economy to improve. None of the pledges from government agencies or individuals (approximately $230,000) was collected because sufficient funds to reach the purchase price of the land was not reached. Individual cash contributors have been offered the return of their donation. We will continue to work on the project and renew fundraising efforts when the economic climate improves.
