TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) — You will soon see some markers going up in Tupelo.
Those markers will point out special places in the city's history.
The Tupelo Convention and Visitors Bureau is creating heritage trails featuring Chickasaw Indian, civil rights and Civil War sites in Tupelo and Lee County.
"We hope to do the first marker in April," said Neal McCoy, the CVB's executive director, "and then, we'll do them hopefully one or two every month after that."
McCoy expects about 20 of those markers to go up by the end of the year.
The Chickasaw Indian trail will begin in Fairpark at the statue of Chief Piomingo.
The first civil rights marker will be placed in front of Reed's Gift Shop, which used to be the old Woolworth store.
The first Civil War marker will be located on Spring Street to mark the Battle of King's Creek.
