Back Woods

As you walk through the dense Mississippi woods, you come across a forgotten relic from a bygone era - an abandoned home that looks as though it has been frozen in time since the turn of the century. The wooden exterior of the house is weathered and aged, with missing boards revealing the skeletal framework beneath.

Old McComb Hospital

The original McComb City Hospital was a 2-story brick building constructed in 1911.

Hidden Plantation

I had been eyeing this plantation since I found it studying Google Maps.

Pine Valley School

So this is the school where I was absolutely quiet while exploring because I spotted a house next door. The house turned out to be abandoned as well. Anyway, this school has long been abandoned.

Pine Valley Home

So there I was at an abandoned school, Pine Valley, when I noticed a house next door. I was absolutely quiet watching every step! I was so quiet to make sure I didn't alert anyone to my presence.

Casa de Chaos

So there I was in a very rural Louisiana town shooting the downtown area. It was abandoned & left for dead. Next to one of the buildings was this amazing house.

The Cleaners

The cleaners in this rural Louisiana town still has clothing that is ready, but was never picked up.

Wilson Memorial

The Cottonwood Church was first built around 1880 on land bought from the Clarks. The cemetery is still located in that area. A new larger church was built in 1905 and the original church taken own. Services were held once a month in those days. We don’t have details of the early days because the church records were burned in a fire in 1925.

Cricket's Bait & Treasures

I stopped by Cricket's and chatted awhile with the owner. She says the place has been photographed many times and she said I was free to do so as well.



Arkansa Gem

On my way to an abandoned school, this gem caught my eye.


This Joy Theatre (the 2nd with that name in town) was opened on November 23, 1949 with Anne Baxter in “You’re My Everything”. It was closed on May 18, 1980 with Pam Grier in “Foxy Brown” & “Lips and McCain”. ~ Cinema Treasures

Old High School

This old school has been shuttered for awhile & it is one of two major schools closed down in this same town.

Union Baptist

Nothing out there to tell us much about this church. It looks like it has been abandoned for a long time. I suspect the roof will cave in completely very soon.The sign out front has faired better than the church itself.

Miller's Chapel

I was on my way to another spot when I passed by this gem. Nearly everything needed to conduct service is still inside.

West Louisiana Prison Farm

On the opposite side of the parish is an untouched prison farm complete with a law library.

Sonny Boy Williamson II

Alex or Aleck Miller (originally Ford, possibly December 5, 1912 – May 24, 1965), known later in his career as Sonny Boy Williamson, was an American blues harmonica player, singer and songwriter.
