Big Stone Gap council members and volunteers at the Lonesome Pine School and Heritage Center cut the ribbon for the new Garnett Gilliam Continuing Education Center July 10. The expansion was completed in 2019 but was not open to the public due to COVID-19. Gilliam has been instrumental in preserving the history of Big Stone Gap and surrounding areas and compiling the information and artifacts for the heritage center. Volunteers hope the new addition will be used for class reunions, book signings and field trips. KED MEADE PHOTO
