The Clay County Historical Society recently teamed up with Albert Lindsay of Videotronics to produce videos promoting the pioneer village - the site where our county government was established in 1807.
Today we are releasing the first video - a short silent movie version that we love! Local actors portraying longhunters and the first county officials are Ralph Hollin, Hobert Hensley, Jennings Vanover and our society vice-president, Danny L. Finley. The longer video will be released later.
Thanks to everyone who assisted us in the project including the Manchester Tourism Commission and our dedicated volunteers! Let us know what you think!
Our website is under construction
