Yazoo & Mississippi Valley Station Reopens!

Remember this photograph from May 2011?

The Mississippi River was inflicting sever flood damage, which included backing up the Yazoo River, flooding the Yazoo & Mississippi Valley Rail Road Station in Vicksburg, Mississippi.

My associate, Marian Phillips, kept me posted on the plight of the old station.  She just reported restoration is complete, and the old Yazoo & Mississippi Valley Rail Road Station enjoyed its grand reopening this past weekend (July 11th.)

This certainly speaks highly of the residents of Vicksburg and many others, who dedicated themselves to preserving a priceless piece of railroad history. Bravo!

Ms Phillips hosts a blog featuring her many adventures around her "beloved" Vicksburg, Mississippi, an area rich in history!
