These columns were originally published under the title Rankin County Historical Society Searchlight. The first column, written by Linda Goff, appeared in Rankin County News on February 14, 1979. Sara Richardson and Catherine Hill continued the column until 1996 giving us many more tidbits of our county’s history. The Rankin County Historical Society wants to share these visits into the past with you.
