Coahoma County Higher Education Center


     The Cutrer Mansion is on the campus of the Coahoma County Higher Education Center (CCHEC), which is supported by Coahoma Community College (CCC), the Coahoma County Board of Supervisors, and private donors like you.  For 17+ years, the center was owned and managed through a partnership between Delta State University (DSU) and Coahoma Community College, but DSU dropped out of the partnership in June 2017 due to severe budget cuts. That partnership began in 1999 after the community came together to raise $750,000 to save the seven-thousand-square-foot mansion from demolition. It was owned at the time by the Saint Elizabeth Catholic Church and had been used as a educational facility for over 50 years. The Center is still used today as a cultural and educational center that offers a wide-variety of programs and events to the public, but the anchor of the campus is the historic Cutrer Mansion. The Cutrer, and the rest of the CCHEC campus, is available to rent for parties, weddings, events and conferences of all kinds. Come see us! We'd love to show you around.
