PICAYUNE, Miss. (AP) - City officials and the Pearl River County Historical Society are working to establish a county museum.

Society spokesman Jerry Stough tells The Picayune Item (https://bit.ly/1krDFIZ ) the group is collecting artifacts on county life from the 1700s to the present.

So far, local residents have donated some old logging artifacts such as handsaws, a vintage cowhide chair, kitchen implements and a wedding dress.

The museum will be established on the third floor of Picayune City Hall.

City officials have agreed to pay the cost of utilities for the museum for three to five years.

The society is seeking funding to build or acquire display cases to secure many of the artifacts.
