In other abandoned news, I want to take a trip to Mississippi before it gets too warm. I’ve located a ghost town (although there are a handful of people living in trailers in the area who get tetchy if you call it that to their faces) in Jefferson County called Rodney, it’s about a 4 hours’ drive so if I get up early I should be able to squeeze it into a day trip. It was never a large town, and the population started to decline soon after the Civil War, when the Mississippi River shifted course away from the town. But there were still a few residents there until the end of the 20th century, so there are still some buildings standing–a couple of churches, government stuff. And of course there’s a cemetery.

Nearby is the Windsor Ruins, the remains–pretty much just the columns–of the largest antebellum plantation in the state. It survived the war, only to burn to the ground in 1890. I’d like to shoot that on the same trip.
