    This is one of that houses typical american houses wich ofteIt reminds me the books of Mark Twain, John Steinbeck, Whashington Irving, Sherwood Anderson, Willa Carter, Scott Fitzerald, William Carlos Williams, Ralph Waldo Emerson and many others... Yes this is the typical american house wich lives in the dreams of the all readers who use to go to the libraries as Samuel Mallamud, Itzhak Bashevis Singer, Henry Miller and, in the modern times writers like Stephen King and Philip Roth. A tradition american housing. It seems to have live and it is be living ...Yes, did it... Gorgeous !

    It is. Pinckneyville is an unincorporated community, Woodville is the closest town. The MS Dept. of Archives and History's Historic Resource Inventory database is an invaluable resource for historic buildings, builders, and architects. www.apps.mdah.ms.gov/Public/prop.aspx?id=30521&view=f... This is the rear elevation of Cold Spring. The arch was filled in between 1938 and 1978. www.flickr.com/photos/library_of_congress/14282557064/in/...
