Click on these pictures to get a better look at the Itawamba Courthouse as it appeared around the early 1900s. The top photograph was taken while facing the courthouse's southeastern corner, from the present-day location of the ICDC building (former site of Senter Funeral Home). Notice the fence that encloses the courthouse building.
The next photograph was taken about the same time. There apparently was an event held on the courthouse grounds, and I would bet it was a reunion of Confederate soldiers. This was a popular event held throughout the South during the early 1900s, usually at a county's courthouse. I've provided a couple of closeups of the scene. The men in this picture appear to be posing for the photograph in their nice suits and hats.
Both photographs were found at the Itawamba County Historical Society's library in Mantachie. You never know what treasures might be found there!
