Mississippi

rodney baptist church

In between shows, I spent several days in the Vicksburg, Mississippi area. My main objective was to revisit the town of Rodney, once a booming town south of Vicksburg. The town has a long history before the Civil War, but now only a few residents remain. While I was there, wandering the dusty streets, the sound of someone mowing a lawn drifted through the town. Two churches remain: the Baptist church, which is deserted, and the Presbyterian church, which is in much better condition. I’ll post a few more images next week, but this shot from the Baptist church speaks to my soul.
