Speak Up: Georgetown Historical Society Funding Still Under Review



City funding earmarked for the Georgetown Historical Society may be in question, amid opposition to a Civil War Confederate symbol that continues to fly the grounds of the Nutter D. Marvel Carriage Museum. The mayor and city council voted on July 25 to grant $24,750 to the company, subject to the formation of a committee to review options and the possibility of the rebel flag falling.
