Description

This postcard features a black and white image of the Mississippi Mills, one of the earliest and most important manufacturing plants to be established in Copiah County, Mississippi. It was the cotton and woolen mills known as the Mississippi Manufacturing Company, later renamed the Mississippi Mills, which was erected in 1866 at Wesson by Colonel James Madison Wesson. The building is a long, five story structure with six story towers spaced from each corner of the building with one in the front center. A two story building at the right end has a cupola in the center of the roof. Trees are in front of the mill buildings. An electric utility pole is pictured in the left of the image. The title of the card is printed in the lower left of the image. The back of the card is addressed to Mrs. J. T Gibson in San Francisco, California. The card is postmarked Beauregard, Mississippi, December 18, 1906.
