Recently I acquired a booklet called “Mississippi Pilgrimage 1974” which gives good coverage to all the pilgrimages going on in the state in the Spring of 1974. Since it’s pilgrimage time, I thought it would be good Friday fun to reprint the booklet in all its two-color, hoop-skirted glory so we can compare today’s pilgrimages to those of 40 years ago. Today you can check out the cover page and the introduction, and future Fridays through pilgrimage season will be individual towns–you may be surprised at how many Mississippi towns opened up their historic houses back in the day!

Wonder if all these mansions are still around, especially after Katrina on the coast.
The coast pilgrimage list in this booklet is somewhat vague. It did not list any of the addresses, names or photos of places that would be open that year like what was done for other towns.
