The Minnie Pearl Statue was removed from the Centerville Square. According to the original agreement, the statue could only be removed for repairs to the statue. The square is undergoing renovations and the statue needed to be removed and the one that spearheaded the campaign to have Minnie placed there, removed the statue to a nearby county. Most citizens hope that it can be worked out to bring the statue back to the square after the renovations are completed.
