THE MISSISSIPPI Craft Center held an unusual ribbon-cutting last week – for its parking lot, which was recently paved for the first time in six years.
Since the craft center was finished in 2007, employees and visitors have parked on a gravel lot at the facility, located on Rice Road in Ridgeland.
Finally, a combination of state and federal dollars allowed the lot to be paved. It was finished in November.
