Key To Natchez

Natchez Mayor Butch Brown has one key to the city remaining from his first mayoral administration in the 1990s and he's holding on to it for a special occasion.
The Natchez Democrat reports Brown has had new keys made since taking office last year. Brown says the original key holds sentimental value.
Yet, Brown says he has someone in mind - such as getting President Obama down here for city's yearlong tricentennial celebration in 2016.
The tradition of presenting a key to city can be traced back to medieval times when entrance to a city required permission to enter through locked gates.
Now the tradition is an honorary gesture presented to distinguished persons and honorary guests of cities.
