History on display at depot

By REGGIE ROSS

The Grenada Depot carries a lot of history, including two previous structures being burned during the Civil War.
One historian has added a special marker to show at the current deport to show its significance.
Girault Jones, a rail historian, recently added a marker recognizing the Grenada Depot as an historical place. The mark is on Second Street near the tracks.

Jones said he took on the project six months ago when efforts to get the Mississippi Department of Archives and History to place the historical marker there failed.
