The Van Buren Historical Marker

Tuesday afternoon I stopped by the site of the old river port town of Van Buren, west of the Tombigbee River. Van Buren was one of Itawamba County's earliest towns. It was from this river port that much of antebellum Itawamba County's cotton was shipped to Aberdeen. For further information about this historic town site visit the following earlier posts:
