Anniversary wishes extended to Edrie and John Ward – 54 years
Tommy Stewart of Houston, Tx., has been the visitor of Tom and Linda Stewart and children, Brittney and Thomas.
Happy anniversary wishes go out to Edrie and John Ward, who celebrated 54 years of marital bliss Tuesday.
Fall has arrived in Holly Springs with all of its splendor -- driving down Chulahoma Avenue, you can see the magnificent beauty of the trees that line the street. Last week, the street was also lined with signs touting well wishes for the Marshall Academy Patriots, who travelled to Leake Academy Friday night for the first round of post-season play-offs. The cheerleaders and family members creatively decorated political signs, as well as life-size football players, and dotted the yards with them. There is nothing better than the Friday night lights in the crisp fall air. Let’s congratulate the Patriots on a successful football season.

Fiddler’s Green on Christmas tour
Fiddler’s Green is timeless; parts of it have seen the light of three centuries. The first section was built in the early days of Holly Springs, when the town was new.
In 1902, Edna McDonald built the front in the style of the day, then J.W. Stephenson, grandfather of C.C. Stephenson, lived here the next 104 years.
The Stephenson were a prominent farming family of Marshall County and this was their townhouse. Mr. Stephenson was the president of the United States Amateur Field Trials held here in the 1930s and 1940s.
Fiddler’s Green is now the home of Jim and Susan Crell who have made this beautiful home timeless and pervaded it with a sense of homey elegance. This is its second time to be on the Christmas tour.
The Christmas tour is something good happening in our city. People look forward to coming every year, as it’s different each year. The houses are dressed in Christmas splendor and are a delight to see.
The Marshall County Museum began the tours in 1989 as a fund-raiser to support the museum and we are tax-free. We have had hundreds of people each year and they help spread the fame of Holly Springs as a great place to visit.
Tickets for this wonderful “Christmas In Holly Springs” tour cost $15 each, if you buy 10 before November 28, and $18 individually and during the week of the tour all tickets are $22. Tickets may be purchased at the museum at 220 East College Ave., in Holly Springs. Call 662-252-3669.
