Langston Centre to reopen November 17 with ceremony


JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (WJHL) – A historic school in Johnson City is reopening to the community.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony has been set for the newly renovated Langston Centre.

The event will take place on November 17, from 2-5 p.m. at 315 Elm Street.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony will happen around 2:15 p.m. and tours of the renovated building start right after.
