PICAYUNE, Miss. (AP) - The history of Picayune and Pearl River County will be on display when a new museum opens Thursday.

The ribbon-cutting is 9 a.m. at the city hall in Picayune.

Jerry Stough, a member of the Pearl River County Historical Society, tells The Picayune Item (https://bit.ly/1K8lPET ) there are displays on the county’s logging days and photographs from high school graduating classes as far back as 1900.

A glass case displays old school books from the 1800s while another has a collection of arrowheads collected from various sites around the county.

The logging display includes photographs of the various technology used throughout the life of the industry, including a photo of a two-wheel cart capable of carrying one log at time and an eight-wheel cart with three logs aboard.
