Video: First day of school in 1940 at Holly Springs

Although Canton Rewind is focused on Canton, this video of the first day of school in Holly Springs from 1940 is a treasure for anyone interested in local history.

Joe Ragsdale and “Butch” Ragsdale of Canton shared this video — originally from 16mm film — that was made on their sister’s first day of school in 1940. Virginia Ragsdale Bragg turned 80 in April.
