Missing Woodall Mountain Sign Recovered Down a Well

The Woodall Mountain summit dedicated during the 2010 convention but which disappeared shortly afterwards has been recovered after being discovered hidden in a well and tied to a garden hose. Great job!

The text of the announcement:

PLAQUE RECOVERED – On January 22, 2015, a local teen out for a hike in an area near US 72 in Iuka discovered something a little strange, an old water hose with one end tied to a tree and the other end thrown over into an old abandoned well.
When he pulled the hose from the well, he discovered the original plaque that had been stolen from it’s mount at the top of Woodall Mountain. The plaque was installed by the Highpointers Club with funding from the Highpointers Foundation on October 9, 2010.
Our office was notified and the plaque has now been cleaned and returned to the Tishomingo County Development Foundation.
Anyone with information about the plaque’s disappearance or how it ended up where it was found is asked to contact our office at (662) 423-7000. For additional information, contact Investigator Adam Hall
