As Lincoln County moves into the New Year, Moscow Mills will be celebrating its 200-year anniversary of its founding by Shapley Ross.
To bring light to the exciting upcoming year for the town, the Moscow Mills Bicentennial Committee has scheduled a number of events throughout 2021 to celebrate the two centuries of its existence.
“We are looking forward to the upcoming events, and are excited to see the community come together,” Moscow Mills Mayor Patrick Flannigan said.
There will be a Founder’s Day Flag Ceremony and an Easter Egg Hunt in March, along with an 1820’s Day in May, a Bluegrass festival in September, a tractor show in October, and Christmas festivities in December, and much more.
The Bicentennial celebration will be capped off on Dec. 31 with a “New Year’s Eve Bicentennial Bash.” The event was originally planned to kick off the festivities, but was rescheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“A lot of planning has gone into these events and we hope that the community will participate,” said committee chairman Tina Hunsel, whose family has been a resident of Moscow Mills since its founding.
Although events can still be rearranged due to COVID-19, the committee would still like everyone to get excited and look forward to the upcoming fun.
