Egg Hunt in the Village: 1922

On Easter Sunday, 1922, the boarding students of Itawamba Agricultural High School were treated to a special Easter dinner on that Sunday, April 16, 1922. After the dinner, the students walked up the hill to the Arthur T. Cleveland home on Beene Street where they enjoyed an egg hunt on the grounds of the Cleveland home, hosted by Mr. Cleveland's wife Effie. Arthur T. Cleveland was a long-time attorney in the town of Fulton. The above invitation was found in the school scrapbook of student Letha Ferguson.
