    This attraction about 15 miles north of Jackson features petrified wood unearthed as erosion cut away a gully. An about 1/2 mile trail winds it's way through the gully.

    a creek along the natchez trace

    the natchez trace is a 444 mile long scenic highway that runs through mississippi, alabama, and tennessee. the trace was originally a native american trading route. there are two entrances to the trace near jackson one on I-20 just west of town and one on I-55. if you are not in a hurry this is a very interersting and pleasant way to go to natchez from jackson. see the attached website for more information.

    These homes are often converted into Law Offices, and some of them have signs to allow the public some understanding of the homes original owner. The details of workmanship around windows, doors, and roof edging are often quite extraordinary.

  • It's a baby Washington Monument!

    by jinkoe Updated Feb 21, 2006

    I drove on I55 just north of the I55/I220 split and saw a replica of the Washington Monument. I thought it was going to be something significant, but it appears to just be something that was built for the sake of being built.

    It's on private property, with no signs or descriptive words, but it's impressive nonetheless. From what I've been told by a local contractor, it's nothing more than a cellphone tower. Oh well, it's still sort of interesting to see.

    Jackson has a number of fine old mansions many of which have been restored within easy walking distance of the Capitol building along State Street.
