Pike County celebrated its 200th birthday on Dec. 9 with the first ever Christmas Light Parade and all day on the courthouse square Dec. 10 for the Bicentennial Christmas Festival.
The celebrations culminated a year’s worth of events to recognize Pike’s growth since the county was first founded in 1822. Read about the early history of Pike County in the special Bicentennial section on pages 1B-7B. See more photos from the recent celebrations on page 8B.
