If you’re in downtown Jackson beween now and and July 7, be sure to stop in to the Old Capitol Museum and spend some time with the “Photo History of Jackson” now on exhibit. According to the MDAH website:
The exhibit features early images of well-known buildings and documents Jackson’s development from a small town of modest homes to a bustling metropolis. The city’s first skyscraper, the circa-1903 state capitol, and the antebellum governor’s mansion are still in use.
Also highlighted in the exhibit are cultural and historical events such as the Tougaloo Nine’s 1961 “read-in” at the whites-only city library and an aerial shot of the 1979 Easter Sunday Flood.
