Special fund set up for Preserving Itawamba County's Heritage

Word was received via telephone on September 14, 2009, that the CREATE FOUNDATION of Tupelo has approved a special fund for the benefit of the Preserving Itawamba County's Heritage group's attempt to relocate The Cedars.

The special fund will receive tax-deductible donations to the Create Gaither House Project Fund. The preservation and relocation of The Cedars (Cates-Gaither House) is the first project of the Preserving Itawamba County's Heritage, a newly formed preservation group in Fulton.

You are encouraged to help save The Cedars, to restore the house to its original layout prior to several modern additions, and to relocate it to a new site. Your tax-deductible donations should be sent to
CREATE Gaither House Project Fund
P.O. Box 1053
Tupelo, MS 38802
Individual and corporate sponsors are welcomed. Indicate on your check that the donation is to Create Gaither House Project Fund.

For more information contact members of Preserving Itawamba County's Heritage or email Terry Thornton at or at

Your help in this important heritage preservation project is needed.

The public is invited to all of the meetings of Preserving Itawamba County's Heritage. The next scheduled meeting is at 5:30 PM, Thursday, September 17 at the Cates-Gaither House for a quick walk-through of the facility followed by a formal meeting at 6:00 PM at the Christian Life Center, Fulton Methodist Church.
