  1. Former Neshoba County Jail (Or Philadelphia jail). In downtown Philadelphia.


    • One point for the identification.


    • Wow..unbelievable! So that’s the place…so inexorably tied to the turbulent 60’s! Thought it would’ve been razed decades ago. Side note..I always thought , contrary to Don McLean’s explanation of the meanings to his anthem “American Pie”, that the line “good ole boys drinking whiskey and rye” referred to newspaper accts. of that town’s deputies, and “chevy to the ‘LEVEE’, levee being where the bodies were buried.

  2. Old city jail. Philadelphia, Neshoba county


  3. 1954 construction, by B. L. Howell & Sons Construction.


  4. The structure is privately owned (at least was last time I checked) and has been renovated to house apartments.
