Waverly Plantation to me looks like a botanical garden than an old agricultural area, with all those wonderful flowers and trees blooming - definitely a sign that spring is already right there! And that house shows its grace and charm over time: I'll tell you, that mansion looks gorgeous!

Keep taking wonderful photos, my friend!

Thank you for showing this side of Mississippi. It is important for people to know that you can't judge places from afar just on broad stereotypes. Also, Waverly Plantation is gorgeous.

Agreed!


And what is so frustrating is that the battery died on my camera before I went to the most beautiful part of the plantation gardens. There were paths lined with large, brightly colored azaleas on both sides. :I

Sorry for the late reply isaidso,


The Plantation house was completed in 1852 and it was a Cotton plantation.

Starkville is a 2 hour drive northeast of Jackson in East Mississippi.

How did you like Mississippi?

Great photos! Although I've never been to Starkville it is kind of what I imagined it. Has a nice small town feel and southern charm to it. And since you have the campus located there must be busting with students and people. Being a historic town must make for nice cultural atmosphere too.
