The Oxford/Holly Springs area poll, our latest poll in the run-up for our 101 Mississippi Places list, ended exactly at midnight on Friday, in a rare display of paying attention on my part.
We almost made 1000 votes, which puts Oxford/Holly Springs right about in the middle as far as total vote counts goes, way ahead of the Central and Northeast polls, but way behind the Natchez and Coast polls.
Rowan Oak tops the list, a very appropriate choice I think. I had hoped the Holly Springs folks would pop in during the second week, but Holly Springs only fell further behind, with its top property, the Illinois Central Depot, scoring behind even the Taylor Grocery. Congrats to Tom Freeland for getting out the vote for his law office, which apparently is more popular amongst the voting population than the Lyceum! Who knew?
