Town of Indianola Historical Markers

Starting in 1998 the Calhoun County Commission, thru Commission Chairman George Fred Rhodes, erected 56 Indianola Markers in the Magnolia/Indianola Beach area. The historical markers tell the story of the history of Indianola. The Markers are as follows:



#55

The War Dept. maintained a depot which was used by the U.S. Army, and was situated in the town of Indianola. The buildings of the depot consisted of five structures for supplies, a small blacksmith shop, and a stable, 32 x 70 feet. The U.S. Army paid a monthly rent of $80 for the use of a wharf, 250 feet long. The Quartermaster's Dept. was normally in charge of such facilities, but the facilities were under the jurisdiction of 2nd Lieut. George C. Barber, 8th Infantry. Lieut. Barber died of yellow fever in 1853.
