Yellow Fever House and Martyrs Church Museum, Holly Springs – Mississippi Mondays October 7, 2019

I settled on the Holly Springs area for this week’s Mississippi Mondays post. When I saw what was on Roadside Americahttps://www.roadsideamerica.com/tip/14548, it was clear what I should the focus of this post. That needs a bit of backstory unless you can read my mind. I recently saw an article on “King” Solomon – William “King” Solomon of Kentucky not the one you are thinking of unless you were thinking Kentucky. Note to self – do a post on “King” Solomon. If you aren’t familiar with the Kentucky King Solomon, it’s an interesting one and how he went from town drunk to town hero. Once I post the article, or if you read about him, the rationale hopefully will follow.
