To view video, click the start button above

This video concludes the five-part look at The Cedars and Fulton, Mississippi, where an attempt is being made to preserve the original 1860s dog-trot portion of the Cates-Gaither House and to relocate it just west of its present site. The landmark house is known locally as The Cedars.

Part 5 is another "Through the Windshield Video" and begins on west Main Street. Traveling east past the college and landmark businesses such as Riley Building Supplies, up the river bluff hill and past Senter Drug Store, the drive proceeds east on Main Street past The Cedars to the Fulton United Methodist Church.

The current owner of The Cedars, Fulton United Methodist Church, has offered the house and a small lot upon which to place it to any group who will undertake the preservation, relocation, renovation, and conversion of the property to community purposes. The leadership of the church recognized the historical importance of The Cedars in offering such gifts as these to the community.

A community preservation group, Preserving Itawamba County's Heritage, was organized the the summer of 2009. The group has been accepted as a special project through the Create Foundation of Tupelo, Mississippi. Donations to the preservation efforts of The Cedars/Cates-Gaither House made be made to
