The city of Bowie is inching closer to building a world record monument.
On Thursday, crews poured concrete for the Bowie Knife Project. The $160,000 project took two years of planning and the approval from the community. All of the money for the project came from donations.
While having a world record monument is something the town is excited about, officials said the attraction will also bring money to the city.
“We anticipate it will bring somewhere to the excess of $1-million per year and tourism dollars into town,” Van Bazie, a member of the Bowie Knife Committee said.
