WEST POINT, MS – Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant is scheduled to visit the newly renovated headquarters of Mossy Oak located in the heart of downtown West Point, Mississippi. The visit will take place on Monday, April 30.
Mossy Oak recently completed the renovation of a building that has become a significant pillar to the company for a large part of its 30-plus-year history. The primary renovation is a building that has significant historical value to Mossy Oak’s founder and CEO, Toxey Haas. The building was once owned by his great-grandfather A.P. Cottrell in 1892. Over time, the building had different owners, but was reclaimed by the descendants of A.P. Cottrell as his grandson, Carl Fox Haas and Mr. Fox’s son, Toxey, bought the building in 1987, one year after the inception of Mossy Oak.
The new renovation features an exclusive museum containing a wide variety of artifacts that each uniquely play significant roles in commemorating the company. The Governor will be the first of anyone outside of the company to see the museum.
“West Point is home, and we’re appreciative that Governor Bryant is taking time out of his busy schedule to come see us,” said Haas. “We are honored to be able to reinvest into this great community that has been so good to us over the years and whose support is, without a doubt, why Mossy Oak even got off the ground. Our roots run deep here, and we’re excited about our new space that helps us share our history.”
“The Mossy Oak name is recognized worldwide, bringing attention and visitors to West Point,” said Lisa Klutts, Director of Community Development for West Point. “Mossy Oak’s recent investment on Main Street is evidence of their continued commitment in not only downtown but the entire West Point community.”
