A Trip To Greenville
On one of these dreary winter days we’ve been having this year, I took a drive with an old friend up to Greenville. We went the back way, which I loved–through the deep woods of Yazoo County, over the Yazoo River at Satartia, and then into the Delta and the National Forest bottomlands. I was pressed for time, and it wasn’t a great day for architectural photography, but it was atmospheric, as the Delta usually is, so I snapped a few shots here and there. Here’s what I saw along the way.
This very cool lift-type drawbridge over the Yazoo River at Satartia was built in 1976 and designed by engineer Maxwell Huff
Questions that make you think.
St. Joseph's Catholic Church (1908)
A friendly and informative historic marker always at hand.
Temple Israel (Hebrew Union Temple), 1906, H. A Overbeck, Dallas, TX, archt.
First Baptist Church (1955)
Oh look--a cornerstone saved from the old Baptist church of 1906! Let's see who the architect or builder was. Hmmm, pastor . . . deacons . . . building committee . . .
Can't leave town without stopping in to see William Alexander Percy's grave monument.
Perhaps the creepiest grave marker in the state
