Society Needs Your Help

The Itawamba Historical Society has begun its 2009 Membership Drive. The society depends entirely upon membership dues and donations to fund the operation of The George Poteet History Center, The Gaither Spradling Library and Historic Bonds House Museum.

Each year all the society’s facilities are open free of charge to the researching public. Expenses, including such items as utilities, insurance, postage and publishing take up most all the society’s proceeds and membership is what keeps the society’s work in the field of historic preservation and Itawamba County genealogical and historical studies going.

In addition to providing its facilities in Itawamba County, the society also maintains, where Itawamba County research material is offered free of charge to the researching public.

The society invites you to help this worthwhile organization by becoming a member. Membership dues are $25 per year and includes a year’s subscription to Itawamba Settlers, the society’s 56-page quarterly membership journal now in its 29th year of publication.

Additional membership categories are available for those who wish to further support the work of the society including Sustaining Membership, Benefactor, Grand Benefactor and Corporate Sponsor.

The society needs your help in carrying out the goals for its twenty-seventh year. For further information about membership in the society, visit the society membership area at

A group of members needs to get the county to make room in the buget for us.
They use the Bonds house and the Poteet Library in their publicity efforts to potential business and familys. For that we deserve to receive funding to better the services they are promoting.
