Bike - Centennial celebrates 200 years of Mississippi


Local Historian Rufus Ward sponsored one of the stops along the Kitty Bryan Dill Memorial Walkway during the Bike - Centennial, Saturday. Participants were encouraged to ride their bikes or walk the half- mile between the back of The Civic to the Bryan Public Library. Ward shared his knowledge of Native Americans who made Mississippi their home long before it became a state in 1817. Groups such as the Horseshoe Robertson Chapter of the NSDAR and the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., also sponsored historical informational stations along the walkway during the event.
