Daviess Co. Monument Relocation Committee votes on recommendations

DAVIESS CO., Ky. (WFIE) - The Daviess County Monument Relocation Committee has voted on their recommendation to present to the Daviess County Fiscal Court.

Their recommendation is to move the confederate monument from the courthouse lawn to either the Owensboro Museum of Science and History or the Owensboro Art Museum.

In both instances, the committee is suggesting the base of the statue be placed on the Panther Creek battlefield.

In their letter to the Court, they will also express concern about the monument ending up in storage. They say they don’t want that to happen at either museum.
