Historical marker planned for Franklin Street to honor 'Chapel Hill 9'


The Town of Chapel Hill has dedicated a site for an historical marker recognizing the Chapel Hill 9.

The marker will be installed in 2020, the 60th anniversary of the event. Thursday the town unveiled a rendering of the marker. (ABC 11)
