Mississippi Choctaws to build fine art museum


The Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians is fulfilling a man's wish to build a fine arts museum.

Roy Clyde Gardner left his entire estate to the tribe. Includes was his 9,000-item collection of fine art and antiques.

While most of the collection has been deemed not “museum worthy" the more valuable items are going to be placed in the museum the tribe will construct. The museum will be located at the Pearl River Resort.
