MC returning president’s home to Clinton campus

CLINTON — A new home for the president of Mississippi College will be built on the Clinton campus.

School officials say the president’s home has been located off-campus for nearly 50 years.

The new two-story, five-bedroom home for the university’s president and family will be located on the site of the former McGuffee House and Hilltop Theater in Clinton.

The Hilltop Theater was once a popular Clinton movie house through the 1960s. After it was acquired by Mississippi College, the building was initially used as a band hall. The building had been unoccupied and used only sparingly for several years.

MC’s art department once used the McGuffee House. Currently, the band facility and a new Art Department Annex are located on the East Campus in facilities bought from the Clinton School District.
