Ridgeland History Room
The History Room, on the left as you enter City Hall, houses many artifacts from Ridgeland’s past. There is currently a display of items from the Fire Department and Police Department. Some of these items will remain on permanent display, joining photographs and other artifacts from Ridgeland’s First Families. We constantly search for additional pieces to add to this permanent collection. If you have photographs, newspaper clippings or other items that you feel would add to this collection, we want to hear from you. Please contact Kim Cooper at City Hall and she will put you in touch with the Society.
In the History Room, along with scrapbooks of photos and articles, you will find the second edition of “The History of Ridgeland, Mississippi.” This brochure features a timeline of Ridgeland’s history, a map depicting the growth of Ridgeland, locations of sites of interest and additional information on churches, city structures, markers, plantations, and cemeteries.
