South Pittsburg Historic Preservation Society
Below are four short clips from films shot by the late Mac Hall and Lawrence Honey. Mr. Hall and his father-in-law, Mr. Honey, shot several home movies in and around South Pittsburg that the Hall family allowed us to transfer to DVD for preservation. Many of the films had scenes of the way life was in South Pittsburg that we found most interesting. We wanted to let others see a little of these historic films and have therefore placed the below four short clips taken from some of the 50-plus films shot by these men for your viewing enjoyment. Thanks to the late Edwina Hall and the Hall family for allowing us the opportunity to preserve these films. If you have home movies made around South Pittsburg or surrounding area that have historic scenes in them of the town, schools, churches, people or events, we would love to talk to you about preserving these by transferring them to DVD. Please contact us at [email protected].
