Some celebrities were in Lebanon Sunday to celebrate the grand opening of the Marion County Heritage Center.

The new center houses several artifacts and collections that showcase the history and beauty of the county including the world's only Turtleman exhibit. 

It actually opened in September during the Ham Days Festival, but the official opening ceremony included a speech by Kentucky's Secretary of State, an appearance by Lebanon native Ernie Brown, Jr. a.k.a. "Turtleman," and a performance by "President Lincoln's Own Band," the group that played in the movie "Lincoln" as well as at President Obama's second inauguration.
