A very sad account of America's lost architecture. At one time, Mississippi was one of the most architecturally diverse states in the country. Sadly, time, neglect, war, vandalism, hurricanes, and fire have reduced the diversity to a mere shadow of its former self. Author Mary Carol Miller does a wonderful job of finding descriptions, backgrounds, and photos of these long lost structures. How unfortunate that photos are all that remain of these once grand structures.
This is as incrediable book with lovely pictures of beautiful mansions that once stood. It's a shame that these mansions are no longer in existance, but their beauty is captured in this book. A nice sequel to the first Lost Mansions of Mississippi. Also Mary Carol Miller's book, Lost Landmarks of Mississippi is a wonderful book, filled with pictures of history in ruins.
