The project is estimated to cost $752,000 and will be paid for with federal earmark dollars, according to Don Hollingsworth, utility manager with the city.

Museum celebrates ‘grand re-opening’
Senator Roger Wicker will be in Holly Springs Saturday, April 17, to cut the ribbon at the “grand re-opening” of the renovated Marshall County Historical Museum, which is also celebrating its 40th birthday.
“It will be a stellar day for the museum,” said Lois Swaney Shipp, museum curator. “We are thrilled that Senator Wicker will be here, and we will also be honoring our board of supervisors, because without them, we would not be here. The supervisors are men of vision who could see that the museum, which is all about the past, is really all about the future.”
