We met at Market Square, near downtown, and headed west past the road construction which you can see a bit of in the second photo.
Our first stop was the Heritage Inn which is being redeveloped. This building has quite the history; before being the Heritage Inn, it was the Mississippi Hotel, and that it still the most commonly used name. It will soon become the Grand Hotel. We are standing in the courtyard in the photo. It was a popular outdoor eating spot when it was the Heritage Inn, but I don't know if it will be used that way in the newer enterprise.
In the background is one of the fine homes which were mentioned in the tour, but I tend to forget who was whom and what was what, so I won't try to retell the story.
We were able to get inside the home that is now a bridal shop.
The final walk-by was this rather grand mansion. I do remember some of the rather sad story associated with it. They had four sons and lost them all in the war. It is for sale if you're interested. The problem for many people would be location since it almost backs onto a grocery store parking lot.
In case you didn't know, the lady in white in some of these pictures is Sue.
