World's Only Cactus Plantation
The Cactus Plantation is still open, but hurry... John's 81 and has had three major surgeries. He told me he's looking for a buyer to carry on the business. He also said I should tell all my friends he's still open for business, albeit much smaller than in happier times. He used to have 10 greenhouses, now he's got 2 - one on the property and another one down the road that's got nothing but bromeliads in it. The one I was in was about one quarter full of Easter lilies, seein' as how we were just 4 days away from Easter... John said he'd been delivering lilies all morning.

It quiet and calm without all of the noise that the city makes
Edwards is a small town several miles east of vicksburg and is normally overlooked by travelers. The town only contains a pre-school and a handful of convenient stores. The population is barely 2,000 and has been on the down slope over the past 60 years. I do not recommend anyone staying in this town.
