Centennial Poles at the Bank of Wiggins

Centennial poles Bank of Wiggins

Celebrating Stone County’s Centennial! The first set of “Centennial Garden Poles” are located at the branch of the Bank of Wiggins! The Bank was one of the sponsors for the poles. Local artists painted the Centennial Poles, the Heritage poles that celebrate businesses that are at least 100 years old, and a theme pole that celebrates the business  (painted by artist Kym Garraway).

Congratulations to Stone County and the Bank of Wiggins on their 100th Birthday!
