Boy Scouts spruce local historic landmark


BRAMWELL, W. Va (WVVA)-- The boy scouts' day of service led a troop to Mercer County on Wednesday.

They traveled all the way from Indianapolis to the jamboree and spent the day restoring a fence along main street in Bramwell.

Scouts scraped off the old paint and rust, then re-painted the fence outside the Bramwell Presbyterian Church.

A project which would have cost the church more than $2000 on their own.

"You know, it just makes me feel really special," said Scout Jeb King. "[The people of Bramwell] appreciate it but I just think it's an amazing opportunity. We're just making our mark, letting people know what we do, and that's just helping people. That's what we're all for."

The boys will be back in town Thursday, and also later on in the week to restore a historic cemetery in Bramwell.

Town officials say they hope the restorations will make people even more proud to live there.
