A Taste of Holly Springs, Mississippi

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT HOLLY SPRINGS?
  1. Holly Springs is a city in Marshall County, Mississippi, United States. Near the Mississippi Delta, the area was developed as cotton plantations, which depended on slave labor. After the American Civil War, many freedmen worked as sharecroppers and tenant farmers. As the county seat, the city is a center of trade and court sessions. The population was 7,957 at the 2000 census. A slight decrease in population was calculated in the 2010 census.

  2. During the Civil War, the town was used by General Ulysses S. Grant as a supply depot and headquarters. In a raid headed by Confederate Earl Van Dorn in December 1862, most of the supplies stored there were demolished. In 1878 the city suffered a yellow fever epidemic in which 2,000 residents died. The existing Marshall County Courthouse, at the center of Holly Springs' square, was used as a hospital during the epidemic.

  3. Rust College was established in 1866 by the Freedman's Aid Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church to serve freedmen and is a historically black college.
