Boy Scouts And Others Celebrate Ringing Of Virginia Liberty Bell

Many area residents witnessed the Fourth of July ringing of the Virginia replica of the Liberty Bell.   Boy Scouts rang the bell, which sits outside the main fire station on Ridge Street.  The guests included a descendant of long ago Governor Thomas Nelson of Yorktown.  Nelson County was named for the former Governor, who was also a signer of the Declaration of Independence.
