Three More Spring Events for Mississippi Preservationists

If you’re looking for somewhere to go other than one of the pilgrimages this Spring, maybe you’ll be interested in one of these events, all of which are dedicated to helping raise funds and awareness for a Mississippi historic building.

Cotesworth, Carroll County–March 30


Threefoot Building Birthday Open House–April 1

See the Threefoot Preservation Society’s Facebook page for more information


Prospect Hill Plantation Open House–April 12

See Prospect Hill’s Facebook page for event details

Visit Prospect Hill Plantation all day, Saturday, April 12th, from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm. Enjoy music, explore the grounds, the cemetery and house (depending on how much work is in progress.) Adults $10 & Kids under 12, $5. All proceeds will go toward work on the house.

  1. I ran across this listing on Craigslist this morning and could not help but feel that it was inappropriate for an individual to be selling a part of MS history which should never have been given to him in the first place.  Thought I would make you aware of it, and hopefully you could forward it to the appropriate person, if such an individual actually exists:

    CL >jackson, MS >all for sale / wanted >antiques – by owner x prohibited[?] Posted: 7 hours ago 40 & 8 Railroad Car Sings – $75 (jackson) © craigslist – Map data © OpenStreetMap (google map) (yahoo map) We recently (2010) restore the 40 & 8 railroad car at GM & O depot in jackson ms for the archives and history department we put new plate names. but the ones been replace are showing here for sale so if you want to own a piece of Mississippi history this is your chance. 75 each or best offer for all



  2. Thanks for the shout out on Cotesworth and ICAA event next Saturday. We would love to have a good crowd on a bright spring day; please RSVP to Sarah McCullough and come on to Carrollton!
