A Nation in Motion: Historic American Transportation Sites


 

This series of blog post are based on the Mississippi entries from the 1976 document A Nation in Motion: Historic American Transportation Sites.  The informal compilation sprang from a 1973 suggestion by the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation to the United States Department of Transportation.  Its purpose was not to be a definitive listing of significant transportation sites, but rather a collection of information on transportation-related sights that might be considered for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places.  There were a total of five separate entries for Mississippi.  We’re looking at each item to see what their status is some thirty-odd years later.  This may give us some insight as to how effective this type of document is.  Scroll down to the links below to view all the posts.
