Treasures of the past

By STAFF REPORTS,

There are a lot of treasures in downtown Hattiesburg, but maybe none moreso than the Hattiesburg Area Historical Society. Located on the first floor of the Hattiesburg Cultural Center, rooms designated to the cause of preserving the Hub City’s history overflow with photographs, scrapbook, pieces of furniture and décor, uniforms, old signs, bottles and much more.

Membership is open to anyone and the current membership roster hails from 30 states and several countries.

Membership is $15 for an individual; $20 for a couple/ organization; $2 student or $100 for a Life membership.
