Officials Try To Keep Historic Tourist Attraction Open

Despite a lack of funds, Harlan County officials say they are doing what they can to keep a historic tourist attraction open.

The state pulled funding for several Tri-Cities attractions including the Benham Schoolhouse Inn.

County leaders say state officials have not approved their use of coal severance tourism money, so they are going to borrow against the building's equity to keep it open.

    Well Harlan County is in the Eastern part of the state. I bet the funds for things West of Winchester did not get pulled.
