is Longwood, an unfinished home that we toured in March in
Natchez, MS. We drove the Natchez Trace from Natchez to
Columbus, MS staying at different places along the way.
Anyway, this home dates back to pre-Civil War days. Actually
the Civil War is why it isn't finished. The inside was never
completed because the Northerners who were doing the work all went
back home when the Civil War started. The man that owned the
home went bankrupt because of the war and eventually died and left
the house to his wife and children. They lived in the house
in just the rooms on the main floor that were finished. To
this day, the house has never been completed although I think it
was lived in until the 1960s.
is just one of the big oak trees at Longwood.

The original sunken Natchez Trace
that was traveled so many years ago on foot or horseback by travelers.
This is literally where Elvis Presley
was born and his twin died. It's in Tupelo, MS and you can tour it
and a museum and chapel that has been built behind it. The house has two
rooms. The front room looks like a bedroom and the back room is a kitchen.
I think it was in Tupelo, MS that we
went to a car museum and you had to vote on your favorite car.
This was my vote. The 1929 Packard. :)
Of course, this is the one that my
husband voted for ... the Mach I Mustang. He'll just about
pick anything Mustang every time ... and splash some yellow paint
on it and you have a winner!!!!!
(he use to own a yellow Mustang!)
