A few days ago, our Mississippi correspondent sent us pictures from the small community of Carpenter, Mississippi. He writes:
"The old Carpenter Store sits beside a north-south railroad line and the tracks were removed several years ago. The railway ran from Jackson to points south in the state.
Carpenter United Methodist Church is used a couple of times a month and is well attended and maintained. Framed deed displayed in church is dated 1901."
