“Crossroads,”  Change in Rural America, is on display in Mt Olive, Mississippi at the Fire Station meeting room until December 12, 2020.  The event is free and open Monday – Saturday from 10-4.  The exhibition is a part of the Smithsonian Institution and hosted by the Jane Blain Brewer Memorial Library.


Only 6 areas were chosen in Mississippi to house the exhibit—and Mt Olive was one of the 6!


Patrice and I visited “Crossroads.”  The exhibit needs to be on your to do list within the next week.  “Crossroads” deals with changes in rural America.  I feel all ages will enjoy and learn something from the visit!


Everyone views the exhibit at their own pace.  I was amazed at the history displayed in the area.  There are six panels for viewing:  Panel 1:  Introduction; Panel 2: What is rural; Panel 3:  Land; Panel 4 Community; Panel 5:  Persistence; and Panel 6: Managing Change.


A special area in the room is Mt Olive history!  The items for sale would make a great Christmas gift if you have anyone with Mt Olive connections.

Our host, Paula Johnson and Sandra Boyd were fountains of knowledge!


Check out the video…and plan a trip to visit “Crossroads” Change in Rural America.
