Come Visit the Ag Museum, Doors Open Monday

JACKSON, Miss. – The Mississippi Agriculture and Forestry Museum was scheduled to reopen Monday, weeks after a massive fire ripped through three buildings, destroying two of them.

The State Fire’s Fire Marshal had said the fire stared in a barn where inmates stacked hay to close to some light fixtures.  Among the prized artifacts that were turned to ashes included some of the first airplanes ever used as crop dusters and a 1920s cotton picker.  The damage has been estimated at about $2.5 million, much of which will be covered by insurance.
