Rankin County Museum and Historical Society, Brandon – Mississippi Mondays August 3, 2020

For today’s Mississippi Mondays post, I went with Brandon in Rankin County, and decided the Rankin County Museum and Historical Society: http://rankinhistory.com/site/ was a good choice. Going to be interesting to see what I can find on it as I am not seeing a lot in my initial search. I would check with the museum/society as the website lists by appointment only.

Website: http://rankinhistory.com/site/ and museum: http://rankinhistory.com/site/?page_id=42. Google Maps shows as permanently closed, but the website shows by appointment only.
