The Once Thriving Community Of Sylvesteria, Mississippi Has Been Reduced To A Few Tombstones In An Overgrown Cemetery

Not many have heard of Sylvestria. However, that wasn’t always the case. At one time, it was a thriving railroad community with two schools, a church, and several large homes. Today, the only sign of Sylvestria’s existence is a defunct track of railroad and an overgrown cemetery.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
