This is a great place to explore some of Mississippi's mysterious past. These ruins have no pictures of what the original structure looked like. This was originally built in a time when photography was limited. Based off of the layout and other mansions in the area it has had an educated guess as to what it looked like when built. It is definitive off of the beaten path but well worth the drive
Fun roadside stop. Pretty remote for no more than 15 or 20 minutes worth of circling and admiring. Recent improvements include a fence, a few signs and a trash can.
