Delta faces ruined dreams, rekindled hope
PART 1 of 2
Along Highways 3 and 49 in the north Mississippi Delta, things are bleak. Towns are crumbling and looted of any pleasant veneer. Empty buildings, once home to industry, rot on a landscape known for its fertile soil. People and stray dogs wander aimlessly through sagging shells of towns. The dismal stretches of roadway look bombed out and broken, like they’ve been through war.
Once roads to riches, 3 and 49 have become roads of broken dreams.
