Friday Finding Beauty ....My town part 1

Today I wanted to show you a slide show of pictures I took recently of Whitworth College and our Post Office in down town Brookhaven...
The post office was built in 1912....
The origins of Whitworth College are tied to the demise of Elizabeth Female Academy, Mississippi’s first attempt to provide higher education for women. Rev. Milton J. Whitworth, a minister and large landowner with property in Brookhaven, Mississippi, began to promote the idea of relocating the school to land which he would provide for the purpose.After the war and reconstruction, the community had recovered sufficiently and began, once again, to prosper.
You can read about the history of Whitworth here
I attended night classes on the campus in 1961 and took typing classes in 1962.
Whitworth has touched the lives of most of the folks in Brookhaven and Lincoln County.

I'm linking this post to "Friday Finding Beauty" event on Claudia's blog Dipity Road. Today all the participating blogs can post whatever they like on their blog that touched them in some way and made them feel, see, or appreciate a moment of beauty in their lives.
I believe beauty is anything that makes you smile or warms your heart.

  1. Molly these photo's were just beautiful. I love the way you did the slide show how they kind of faded in and out, back and forth.
    I think historical things are my favorite things to visit anywhere.
    I also noticed that we are the same kind of photographer. I loved the way you captured the details - the medallion, the fence, the lamp, the knarled tree, etc...I always love details like that.
    Thanks for sharing this beautiful place.
