Support the Cotton Museum

Cotton was once king in the Mid-South, and the Cotton Exchange at Front & Union was the center of activity. Today cotton trading has moved away from Cotton Row, and the Exchange's trading floor has become the Cotton Museum, a fantastic source of information about the cultural, economic, and historical role cotton played in Memphis and throughout the region.

Nov. 15th the Museum will hold its 2nd Annual Harvest Festival & Silent Auction at Earnestine & Hazel's (531 S. Main). There'll be music, food, and drink, and, of course, all proceeds go to support the the Musuem. So as the invitation says, "Lock your desk -- Close your door -- and do your part." For information and to purchase tickets, phone the Cotton Museum at 901-531-7826.
