Some thieves have made off with a sign leading into a historical part of Huntington, and some residents are not too happy about it.
A sign depicting the stage coach route in the Guyandotte area was stolen some time last week. The sign was recently put up during Guyandotte's Civil War Days earlier this month. It was part of the Guyandotte Improvement Historical Society's effort to revitalize the area. It was purchased for $1,500 through the use of grants.
Residents are disappointed that this happened. "It's frustrating. We're revitalizing Guyandotte. Everyone is working together. We just put up banners. It's very frustrating," Huntington City Councilman Rick Simmons said.
Despite the act, the historical society will continue its efforts. Anyone with information is asked to call the Huntington Police Department.
