The Civilian Conservation Corp worked for five years clearing woods, building Shadow Lake and a bunch of cabins. A lot has been added since then to make Roosevelt a run away that isn’t all that far away.
Well after sustaining itself for four years now, every third Saturday of the month, seems like the auction has become a great success. Seems like most of the people are hobby chicken farmers. You know, back yard stuff. Some more serious than others.
Arthur Davis was visiting his sons at Alcorn State University a couple of decades ago when he saw this building for sale in Lorman. At first he wanted to buy it and flip it for a profit. But instead he turned it into a restaurant.
The new Two Museums in downtown Jackson have surpassed all attendance estimates since they opened in December, but Three on the Road reminds us there are a bunch of museums in Jackson, and one of them is just a few blocks up Jefferson from the Two Museums.
Merit Falls near Mendenhall is one of the state's cool spots. It's the kind of place we like in the summer. City kids go to the municipal swimming pool, but out in the country they head for the nearest swimming hole.
The Gulf Coast is a popular summer destination for a lot of us. And along with the sea and the sand, there is another destination we need to look for. If you've driven the length of Highway 90 you have passed by it. But you should pop in and see it one day; The Mississippi Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
They say laughter is the best medicine. If that's, true then there are a lot of folks in the Delta who are getting healthier and one lady could be the reason why; Lisa Bush from Leland. But she is also Sister Lucille. And they are about as polar opposites as you can get.
If you can believe it, back to school is already just a week or so away for some school systems. Everybody wants the school year to be a success. But one school is a little different but is also very successful.
Our lives are measured by the movement of the sun and stars up above. The sun rises and starts a new day. Get enough of these in a row and it's a new week. At the end of the day the sun sets. Combine enough of these with sunrises and it marks a new month, year, or century.
Perhaps the most famous visit to Mississippi's South Delta happened in 1902. Back then it was a Presidential visit. And that visit over a hundred years ago is culminating with a new visitors center opening next year. Both of those events are perpetuating a Delta legend.
Whether you have a patio or a plantation, backyard gardening is one of the summer's favorite hobbies here in the South. We are poking around in the Smith's backyard in Pearl where Carla And Carey had been having so-so success with their tomatoes until this year.
3 On The Road has picked the perfect time to visit the River City of Vicksburg. It is filled with folks who come each year for the Miss Mississippi Pageant. There are signs of the Miss Mississippi pageant all over Vicksburg.
The River City is celebrating a boost in economic growth. A new company officially opened its doors in Vicksburg and city officials break ground on a multi-million-dollar, state-of-the-art sports complex.
Tourism equals big business for Warren County and the city of Vicksburg is the heartbeat helping make that happen. Patrice Clark has more on how tourism is bringing in cash, crowds and changing the culture of the county. Welcome to The Biedenharn Coca-Cola Museum.
Three on the Road is in a Delta backyard this week to take a look at a gardening hobby that exploded. That's what happened at John and Frankie Oswalt's daylily garden near Cleveland. We just got word that John passed away recently. So I'm really glad we got to meet so we can take look at the color he cultivated in his backyard. It will a part of his legacy for years to come.
There may be a lot of things that Mississippi "isn't". But one thing that we ARE, we are the "most generous state in the nation." Generosity is a part of what makes Mississippi Strong. And that spirit of generosity starts early in life, too.
