Chalmers Institute on Flickr.

Holly Springs, MS

On December 10, 2013, Preserve Marshall County Holly Springs announced that Chalmers Institute is the recipient of $80,000 in grant funding from the 2013 Community Heritage Preservation grant program.

Chalmers, built in 1837, has been largely abandoned since the 1980s. It is best recognized as having been the first chartered university in Mississippi. It is currently being rehabilitated into a functional space for the community.

The grant will be used for the replacement of the roof, and the rehabilitation of the interior of Chalmers Institute.

Goodbye Smiling Phoenix on Flickr.

Holly Springs, MS

Tonight, we drank our weight in ‘goodbye’ lattes. The Smiling Phoenix Coffee House, which opened for business in July of 2013, hosted one last live music event before closing its doors.

We were honored to close out with music from two of our most supportive music groups, Yancy & Yancy from Memphis, Tenn. (guitar pictured here) and Zechariah Lloyd from Oxford, Miss., who played at the Phoenix on two or more occasions.

More shots from tonight coming soon.

Students in association with Audubon’s Strawberry Plains are currently excavating the remains of seven share cropper homes found on the Strawberry Plains property.

The sites are being examined for their historical significance. The structures are thought to be as old as the late 1800s, and as recent as the early 1900s.
