Remnants of a Former Glory
Along Highway 90 in South Mississippi, there once stood inspiring mansions with proud white columns and regal roofs. Spanish moss hung down in the yard and meticulously living rooms displayed gilded frames of long dead war heroes and their delicate Southern belles. The dining halls displayed patterned bone china settings, passed down through the generations, while oak cabinets showed off impressive collections of delicate antique crystal. Chandeliers hung, music played and fireplaces crackled, welcoming locals and visitors alike.
This is what they look like now.
