Students in Professor Alexandra Lindgren-Gibson’s 2019 winter intersession course, Public History from Colonial Williamsburg to Drunk History, spent two weeks investigating and documenting the history of an Oxford landmark, Neilson’s Department Store.

Using records related to Neilson’s Department Store in the Archives & Special Collections of the University of Mississippi Library, they created an online exhibit that presents their findings.
