125th Anniversary Celebration for Founding of Mound Bayou

Founded by former slaves I. T. Montgomery, Benjamin Green, and other progressive pioneers on July 12, 1887, Mound Bayou will celebrate its 125th birthday July 8-14, 2012.  We invite you, your family, former Mound Bayouians–and the entire state of Mississippi–to join in the celebration!

July 12, 1887, the town of Mound Bayou was founded.  125 years later, Mound Bayou celebrates its rich heritage and the legacy of its founders, while looking forward to the promise of an even brighter future.

There are many ways for you or your company to contribute to Mound Bayou’s monumental historic occasion.  Join us, by becoming a sponsor, through a financial contribution, or placing ads in our souvenir book.

The Special Events Committee continues to work toward making the 125th Anniversary Celebration memorable.  Please take a few minutes to look at the brochure, consider the level of support you can provide, and join the community for all or part of the week.
