I'm sure y'all have heard about this summer's movie, THE HELP. It's based on the book written by Kathryn Stockett.Well, I'm extra excited about this movie/book because the story takes place in my new hometown of Jackson, Mississippi. Kathryn Stockett is a Jackson native so she mentions a lot of the neighborhoods and local establishments here in town.
I thought it would be fun to give y'all a tour of what Jackson, Mississippi looks like on Saturday afternoon. That way when you read the book or see the film you'll have in mind what it truly looks like.
Mississippi's Capital Building
The Faiview Inn (mentioned in the book)
Driving in Belhaven
Houses in Fondren and Belhaven (two neighborhoods that are mentioned in the book). This is the neighborhood that Ms. Hilly resided.
Be sure to scroll to the top of my blog and pause the ipod before watching the clip.
Hope y'all had a fun on my tour of Jackson, Mississippi.
