Triangle Cultural Center was once Main Street School
By JAMIE PATTERSON
Walking down the halls of the Triangle Cultural Center, the laughter of children can almost be heard down its long corridors.
The smell of aging books lingers in the hallways.
And the sound of chalk tapping against a blackboard with a rip of paper from a notebook echoes from the individual rooms.
The cultural center may now serve as a hub of activity with a variety of community functions, ceremonies and other civic appointments.
But to many, it will always remain Main Street School.
“Good years, good times, good friends, we like to remember,” said Ethel North, as her recollection appeared in A Collection of Memories, compiled by JoAnne Prichard Morris and Sam Olden.
Main Street School first opened its doors to Yazoo students on Oct. 10, 1904. The former “Public School Number One,” located on the same lot, was destroyed by a fire in 1903.
