Lower Mississippi Valley Architecture

 

Historian and Greenville, Mississippi native, Clinton Bagley, will explore the architecture and history of the Lower Mississippi Valley at the May 29 Lakeport Legacies, Lakeport Plantation’s monthly history talk.

Using Mount Holly on Lake Washington and Stanton Hall in Natchez as his primary examples, Bagley will slay popular myths and show how historic records, genealogy and oral histories can bring a historic house to life.

Begley is a historian at the Mississippi Department of Archives and History.

The discussion will be held at the Lakeport Plantation on May 29 at 6 p.m. with refreshments at 5:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
