This site is wonderful. My great Uncle was Governor Paul Johnson and I have fond memories of driving I55 from Memphis to the Gulf coast every year with stops in Red Banks and Hattiesburg. By preserving these sites for people to see years later you are true historians.

I love abandoned places! They are the best locations to take pictures at! Would anyone know of an abandoned fairground or park around Mississippi?
I am interested in the Penny Pepper house. Can you give me an update?
