‘Pontotoc County Historical Society Cookbook’

Town Square Post Office and Museum, in downtown Pontotoc, is the only working historical post office in the nation. Founded in 1998 and operated by the Pontotoc County Historical Society, the museum houses exhibits on local Chickasaw history, early explorers and pioneers, railroading, veterans, education, early homemaking and more. There’s a general store and a blacksmithing shop, and a gift shop.

Society members have created a 126-page cookbook to help support the museum. The book serves up recipes from appetizers to desserts, including canning and old recipes, and recipes contributed by famous Mississippians.

Order the cookbook from Pontotoc County Historical Society, P.O. Box 141, 59 South Main St., Pontotoc, MS 38863. Price is $10 plus $5 S&H, payable to Pontotoc County Historical Society. For more information, call Town Square Museum at 662-488-0388.

Downtown Pontotoc will host a Mississippi Bicentennial Celebration on Saturday, Sept. 30. The event will include exhibits, reenactors, carriage rides, historic tours and more from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
