Tidbits from Holly Springs
In 1878, gas came to town. Holly Springs, New Orleans and Memphis were the first to get gas in this section of the world. Christ Episcopal Church still has the original gasoliers and they are beautiful. Gas lampposts were placed around the square and were there for decades.
