  • On December 18th ,1999, residents of the Letcher County community of Blackey brought over 100 family photographs for scanning to the C.B. Caudill Store and History Center on Route 7 in Blackey for the first Appalachian Program Scanning Bee. Participants received color prints and enlargements of their images for a nominal fee, and the History Center and the Appalachian Archive kept digital copies of the images for their own collections. The event in Blackey was co-sponsored by the SKCTC Appalachian Program, the C.B. Caudill Store and History Center, and Appalshop.
