From Mississippi - A
Guide to the Magnolia State - Tour 3 - Clarksdale section:
The CUTRER HOME
(private), NW. of courthouse on Friar Point Road, occupies the site of one of
the first houses in Clarksdale. Built by the daughter of John Clark and almost
hidden by oak and cedar trees, on the bank of the river, it is a red-roofed,
stuccoed mansion of good proportions.
The Cutrer Mansion was owned for many years St. Elizabeth Catholic School and
used as part of the school. The mansion was threatened with demolition
when the school was going to expand and needed the space. Through
local preservations efforts the mansion was saved. The mansion is now
owned through a partnership of Delta State University and Coahoma
Community College and has undergone extensive renovations and is used as Coahoma
County Higher Education Center.
