Hatfield-McCoy artifacts sought
Officials in Pike County are welcoming archaeologists who have an interest in digging at sites connected to the Hatfield-McCoy feud.
A statement from Judge-Executive Wayne Rutherford said a local landowner who lives on a property in Hardy recently invited the National Geographic Channel to scour his land for artifacts. A piece of property once owned by Randall McCoy was explored.
A crew from the show “Diggers” found bullets and a piece of the burned cabin while digging on the property.
Rutherford said interest in the famous feud continues to grow. He recently sent a letter to the Kentucky Heritage Council, urging it to conduct more digs in the county.
He said the county is seeing a “revival in public interest in the famous Hatfield-McCoy feud.”
