Memorial Day aka Decoration Day

The Pike County History Center will be closed this coming Monday, May 30, 2016 in observance of Memorial Day. Please remember all veterans that have served and have either returned to their loved ones safely, injured, or have given the ultimate sacrifice. Veterans of all branches of service have given so much so that America can be a safe place to raise your family. Please thank a veteran every day for their service!

Here is a little history regarding Decoration Day.
