Johnson County Bicentennial Ceremony Today
By WestKyStar Staff
VIENNA, IL - A ceremony will be held at noon today at the Johnson County courthouse in Vienna, to celebrate the county's bicentennial.
The current U.S. flag will be lowered and a fifteen-star flag will be raised in its place. It will fly over the weekend as a remembrance of when the county was established in 1812.
After the fifteen-star flag is raised, a statement by the then-governor of the Territory of Illinois will be read, proclaiming Johnson County.
The public is invited.
