Anyone remember the Mississippi River Basin Model south of Clinton? It was partially built by German and Italian prisoners-of-war from next-door Camp Clinton. Remnants of it are in a Jackson city park.

They were places that people went to for entertainment. I think it's too bad that Jacksonians and others won't have the opportunity to see that Mississippi River model in operation. But then again, insurance liabilities probably make it impossible to re-open to the public even if Jackson did have the money to restore it.

They have started allot of remodeling in the down town area of Jackson. I just went down on Capitol street to this delicious Jamaican Cafe that I absolutely love. Down town Jackson still has allot to do with reaching the level of other cities with more to offer to the tourist and locals around there, but with due time I do see this happening. It would truly bring in great revenue for the city as well.

Smith Park still holds certain events sometimes, but it's largely a homeless breeding ground, but the city has plans to completely renovate the park and make it more family friendly.
