FULTON, Miss. (WTVA) -- With the help of the City of Fulton and several community organizations, one of the oldest homes in Fulton is well on its way to a re-birth.

The home known locally as "The Cedars" dates back to the late 1850's.

Members from Fulton United Methodist Church, The Fulton Community Volunteers, and the Itawamba Historic Society, just to name a few, have all worked hard to keep the structure standing.

"It's an old historic home and it should not be destroyed," said Fulton resident Randy Aycock.

Thanks to grant money and funds raised through the CREATE Foundation, the exterior renovations of the now registered landmark, should be complete by Christmas.

"When we finish the completion of the interior renovations we see it being used as a teaching tool for the schools," said Aycock.

Aycock says the home could also be used as a location for receptions or as an information center for the city of Fulton.

But for any of those things to happen continued financial support is a must.

Aycock says donations may be given through the CREATE Foundation, for the "Cates Gaither House Project."
