Dedication of the Van Buren Historical Marker

During the mid-1980's the Itawamba Historical Society sponsored an application to the Mississippi Department of Archives and History for a permanent historical marker at the site of the old river port village of Van Buren on the Tombigbee River. Pictured above is the public dedication for the marker held on a Sunday afternoon. A large crowd of historical society members were present including many citizens from this historic rural community.
