The First Roofers of the Depot's 1886 Addition!

Cite: Wyatt, Gwen.  Summer Roofers. 1990. Photography.  The Depot, Holly Springs, MS.  
Who were the first roofers of our pyramidal roofs?

Surprisingly, we actually have an answer.

On March 21st 1886, H.J. Yeldham and his crew signed their roofing masterpiece.  These names appear on the underside of the roof decking in the attic.

If you, or someone you know, has any story about these men please send us a note at  We love hearing from you and thanks again for reading!
