Abandoned South Mississippi uncovers the mystery of the wide variety of abandoned locations explored by author and photographer, Jay Farrell.
Readers will enjoy being a fly on the wall during a multi-day excursion to South Mississippi’s towns and rural backroads, far away from roaming tourists. The distress and skeletal remains of the antebellum homes, country general stores, churches, industrial buildings, and more are photographed and researched in an effort to tell their forgotten stories.
Photographs and narratives take readers along for the ride, bringing them back to a different place and time, safe from the risks found within the haunting, dilapidated buildings.
Southern hospitality, home cooking, beautiful meadows, cotton fields, quaint small towns, and the beautiful Gulf Coast are all common associations with South Mississippi—this inside look explores the darker elements of the region that the average passerby would not dare examine.
