Trust to release list of endangered places
JACKSON — On Sept. 10, the Mississippi Heritage Trust (MHT) will reveal its “10 Most Endangered Historic Places” list for 2009, shining a spotlight on historic places that are in danger of disappearing forever.
The event will take place from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m. at the Union Train Station in downtown Jackson. Tickets, which are $50 per person in advance and $60 per person at the door, are on sale now at www.mississippiheritage.com or by calling (601) 354-0200.
Unveiling the “10 Most” places at the event will be master of ceremonies Walt Grayson of WLBT-TV. The endangered locations, which have been chosen by a jury based on submissions from around the state, will remain a secret until the event.
The event will feature food by Mint Julep Catering, drinks and live music by Howard Jones. As a bonus, those attending the event will be treated to exclusive “hard-hat” tours of the King Edward project before it opens to the public.
The evening will also feature a silent auction of art pieces representing the “10 Most” sites for 2009. Artists from around the state have been matched up with one of the sites and asked to produce a work of art inspired by the location.
