Construction of H.V. Cooper High School appears to be nearing completion in this photo. The name of the school was later changed to Vicksburg High. In the foreground is the stadium on Lee Street. The photo is from the Old Court House Museum collection. The school opened for the 1958-59 school year.

Historic photos taken in and around Vicksburg are featured on Sundays in The Vicksburg Post. Many of the photos are from the J. Mack Moore Collection at the Old Court House Museum. Though not all photos were taken by Mr. Moore, they are part of the collection given to the museum by longtime Vicksburg Post managing editor Charles J. Faulk. Appropriate photos from the public will also be accepted and published. To submit a photo, contact Karen Gamble at 636-4545.
