Masons dedicate cornerstone for Beckley police


It's a tradition that dates back to president George Washington... cornerstone dedications by the Freemasons.

Saturday afternoon, Masonic Lodge 95 in Beckley dedicated a cornerstone at the construction site of the new police station. It was the first time since the 1960's that the Masons dedicated a cornerstone in Beckley, and they verified the cornerstone was indeed square, level, and plumb. Deputy Chief Jake Corey says they are excited by the construction. "This is something that the police department in its history has never had. A full-fledged built police department. We've always taken over another building, and had to turn it in to something. So we're extremely happy that we're finally going to see this come (to be)."

Corey says they hope construction on the new station will be complete sometime this Fall.
