I found these two vintage 1959 photos that my father, Allen Cogbill, must have taken. They show the
1959 Fourth of July Picnic grounds directly across the street from the Gin on Hwy 57. This was the
traditional 4
th
of July picnic ground for local black families. I remember seeing the picnics each year
when I was very young. Thought that you and the folks in Grand Jct. might like to see these.
Perhaps someone more knowledgeable about these annual events can fill in more   (Lucy Cogbill)

The Old Grand Junction Depot, and the
Grand Junction Hotel Built around 1859
The depot served as a hotel, depot and saloon. Grand
Junction was a major hub for the Memphis-Charleston,
the Mississippi Central South, and the Tennessee
Central. The line coming out of Mississippi was narrow
gauge track while the lines running North were regular
gauge. This made it necessary to remove the narrow
gauge wheels and replace with regular gauge wheels to
continue on. While this was being done, passengers
dined, drank and rested in the Depot.
The building was torn down around 1925 and the
present building was erected.
