I'm pleased we were able to place a Mississippi Department of Archives and History marker at the Duncan House today. MDOT erects these signs for Archives and History and a wonderful crew from Tupelo was here this morning for that job. me, that sign brings real authenticity to the restoration project and I'm just delighted it's in place.
Yep, for now it's covered up....and awaits it's unveiling. We are going to do that at 1:30pm on Saturday, November 5th....the day of the Grand Illumination and all the other fun things occurring that day.....AND YOU ARE INVITED!
We will have a short ceremony to unveil the marker at 1:30, likely lasting no more than 20 minutes. It will feature our friends from the National Park Service and MDAH, as well as several local officials.
