Log cabin Open House set
Ribbon will be cut opening the newly reconstructed historic log cabin in Northside Park on Thursday, Oct. 3 at 11 a.m.
The cabin, which once served as the public library, was destroyed in an EF-5 tornado which touched down, initially, in the park in 2011.
Park officials was able to utilitize the original fireplace, chimney, floor and several logs in wake of the tornado.
In addition, two of the cabin's three original wagon wheels lights were salvagable.
The public is invited to tour the cabin after the ribbon is cut.
The $140,000 project is being funded through the Mississippi Landmark Grant Program and a 20 percent match from the city.
