Community House – Pontotoc MS

Description

The Tudor-style community house was constructed in 1935 by FERA. “A stone-veneered building with false half-timbered gables, very similar to the community houses in Grenada and Winona” (Mississippi Department of Archives and History, Historic Resources Inventory database Fact Sheet). The facility is currently available for community activities and is used frequently for committee meetings, weddings, funerals, and other local events. A committee formed in 1999 and was involved in restoration and renovation for a 10-year period (Elkins, 2009).
