New piece of history donated to downtown Pikeville

PIKEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - The city of Pikeville and Pikeville Medical Center unveiled a new piece of downtown history.

A clock with the city seals in the middle is now permanently placed on the corner of Divison and Main Street.

Pikeville Medical Center donated the timepiece.

Hospital CEO Donovan Blackburn says it symbolizes multiple things, "it's really a great gift to signify and offer a gesture of yesterday, today, and what tomorrow will be."

The piece is also personal for Blackburn because Wednesday marked his two year anniversary with the hospital.

City officials say it is a perfect addition to the historic downtown area.
