We are proud to announce the release of the inaugural issue of Voices of Laurel, a new digital (and FREE!) newspaper produced by The Laurel History Boys.
What makes this a new kind of newspaper is that—in addition to some new content from The Laurel History Boys—it is an outlet for contributions from the Laurel community. People with stories, photos, and artifacts enhance our mission of bringing local history to you.

Ann Bennett, Laurel Historical Society
Jack Bowen, Laurel historian and collector
Ken Boyer, Laurel resident
Wayne Carr, Laurel resident
Jim Clash, Forbes magazine (Laurel High School Class of 1973)
Charles Clyburn, local storyteller
