i thought it would be fun to share the city of tupelo with you as i see it through my camera.  we have lived here for seventeen months and we haven’t put down any real roots  because our plan is to be in mississippi temporarily.  most days i live an anonymous life here but david and i still love to explore the city and speculate about its past as well as learn more about its customs and people. i thought i would start with the downtown block around the lee county courthouse.  you can see the gold dome from many parts of the city as well as when you drive on to main street off the highway and it was one of the first streets we drove down while visiting.  its clock still ticks the correct time and its history is prevalent as you stroll along the iron gate down the sidewalks.  it takes up a full city block with many statues, plaques and monuments on its grounds revealing small bits of history and the buildings facing it are as charming and full of character making this block the perfect spot to start our tupelo tour.  on court street between broadway and spring street there is a cute little stationary and gift shop, swirlz, and on spring street between court and jefferson streets is davis alley with the stables, i’ve been told they have the best burger in town but sadly i have not tried one although it is on our list, and there is also a cute little grocery where you can get sodas, snacks and such called the downtown curb market. on jefferson between spring street and broadway is the newer lee county justice center.  rounding out the block on broadway street is the lyric.  of course there are many other businesses, homes, apartments and vacant buildings on the block.  if you are ever in town i would definitely recommend giving a few of them a visit.
