    In 1935 the Hopson Plantation began a monumental changeover to become one of the first completely mechanized cotton operations in the world. In the fall of 1944, International Harvester introduced the first cotton picker on the Hopson farm making it the first in the world to grow and harvest a commercial acreage of cotton produced completely by mechanical methods.

     Future Plans
    Working in conjunction with the Chamber of Commerce, the Delta Blues Museum and the Library Board, the Hopson Preservation Company hopes to attract many visitors to our area including farm tourists, southern culture enthusiasts, and blues fans, to name a few. HPC also supports community functions and fund raisers, and is available for lease to HPC members for these type functions.
