Context/Comments
Construction began on "Hollywood" in 1858, for John C. Burrus, who was among the first to settle in Bolivar County, Mississippi, when lands were opened by the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek in 1830. The house is the only extant "mansion type" structure remaining in the county. [HABS: MS-140 (1936)]
