History of Railroads in South Mississippi
March 4, 2014
The South Mississippi Genealogical & Historical Society will meet Tuesday, March 4, 2014, at 7:00 PM, at the Genealogy Library, 107 S. Park Avenue, Hattiesburg, MS. The advent of railroads in Mississippi made travel and trade in the state easier and enabled growth of the logging industry in Mississippi. Railroad enthusiast and retired minister, David Price, will take us on a journey through the history of railroads and logging industry in the Piney Woods. Everyone is welcome to attend this free presentation. The Genealogy Library is open at 6:00 PM before meetings and on Saturdays from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM, except holidays.
