Nature is Reclaiming This Forgotten Mississippi Landmark And It’s Heartbreaking

There are so many exquisitely preserved historic sites and structures in Mississippi; unfortunately, Natchez’s Arlington is not one of them. Not only stunning, the significant home set somewhat of an architectural precedence for the grand homes for which the city has become known. Today, Arlington sits in shambles, further deteriorating due to being exposed to the elements.
