Twilight Challenge - My Town

Thursday, July 07, 2011

I have been out of town for the past couple of weeks so I am just now getting week one posted. I hope that is o.k.!!

Welcome to my town, Meadville, MS. Population 519. I have lived within a 10 mile radius of Meadville my whole life!! We are a small, close-knit town located in the Southwest corner of MS.

This is a picture of Main Street. Note our TWO redlights!

The Courthouse

The Toad House - A consignment shop where you can get local honey, homemade jelly, handmade items, etc.

Georgeanne's Deli and Gifts - Get a sandwich while you buy gifts from the bridal registry.

The Feed Meal - The ONLY place in town to get "real food". Fried chicken, mashed potatoes, corn, string beans, squash, yeast rolls, bread pudding . . . you get the idea! They are open Monday - Friday and Sunday 11:00 - 2:00 and just last week they started opening 5:30 - 8:30 on Thursday and Friday nights!! WooHoo!!!

We may be small, but we have TWO banks.

There is one school system for the county (Franklin County). The Jr. High and High school are located in Meadville.

We even have a hospital ~ which is where I worked for 17 years . . . until last year when I decided that I wanted to be a stay-at-home mom to our then 12 year old son.

O.K. . . so most of you have never heard of Meadville, MS; however, some of you may have heard of a town 30 miles West of here. . . Natchez, MS. Natchez is known for its Antebellum Homes. People come from all over the world to tour the homes during the Spring and Fall Pilgrimages.

Longwood - My favorite . . . it is octagonal


The Mighty Mississippi River during the flood earlier this year

And finally . . . MY HOUSE!! (photo taken on one of our rare snow days) We live next door to the Jr. High/High School so I can walk down to the track late in the evenings and get my exercise in!!

I hope you enjoyed a tour of MY TOWN.

    Your town looks so lovely and peaceful. I like that the octagonal building, like something you can build from 3D jigsaw puzzle pieces, wish we have more interesting building structure like that instead of those fancy, modern, lifeless structures!

And your houss during your rare snow days, I love it! Looks like the romantic wintery house ;D
