‘In God We Trust’ sign unveiled at Tennessee's Anderson County Courthouse

CLINTON, Tenn. — The first of four plaques bearing the national motto “In God We Trust” has been installed at an East Tennessee courthouse.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reports that about 175 people attended a ceremony Tuesday at the Anderson County Courthouse to see the black granite plaque unveiled.

Plans for the signs had attracted attention during earlier discussions with some people expressing concerns about the separation of church and state.

However, county commissions approved plans to move forward with the installation. Private funding paid for the cost to create and the install the plaques.

Anderson County Mayor Terry Frank says the other signs will be installed later this week.
