CVB creating heritage trails in city, county

TUPELO — New markers are planned in Tupelo to point out special places in the city’s history.

WTVA-TV in Tupelo reports the Tupelo Convention and Visitors Bureau is creating heritage trails featuring Chickasaw Indian, civil rights and Civil War sites in Tupelo and Lee County.

CVB director Neal McCoy says the first marker could go up in April with one or two every month after that.

McCoy expects about 20 of those markers to go up by the end of the year.

The Chickasaw Indian trail will begin in Fairpark at the statue of Chief Piomingo.

The first civil rights marker will be placed in front of Reed’s Gift Shop, which used to be the old Woolworth store.

The first Civil War marker to commemorate the Battle of King’s Creek.
