A Photo Story by Kay Bramlett


Tupelo Mill Village is Tupelo's first historic district. Tupelo Cotton Mills were considered one of the largest cotton producing units in the South.

“Celebrating Storytelling” is a project of Blue Magnolia Films/Corner to Corner Productions in partnership with Barefoot Workshop.
