The Community Remembrance Project of Boone County will hold a ceremony on the MKT Trail near Providence and Stewart roads to rededicate a plaque marking the site of the county's last documented lynching.
The event is set for 4 p.m.
James Scott, a Black man, was lynched 98 years ago by a white mob after he was accused of assaulting a young girl. Scott was hanged from what was then the Stewart Bridge over the MKT Railroad.
