Mississippi

Mississippi land, much of it alluvial soil deposited by the namesake river flowing down its western border, proved to be the richest cotton-growing ground the earth had ever seen in the early 1800s. The delta was cleared for the great cotton plantations that made Mississippi the fifth-wealthiest state in antebellum America. The Civil War throttled the boomtowns and after the war the state was slow to abandon its agrarian ways. Several disastrous floods on the mighty Mississippi River also throttled several attempts at industrialization.

So much of the Magnolia State still rests in undeveloped land. Almost all of it is heavily forested except those half-million acres of Mississippi Delta still producing cotton. You are more likely to find Mississippi farmers these days harvesting catfish, of which it is the country's largest producer. When Mississippi farms come on the market they are likely to feature timberland, often with managed herds for private hunting.

What the state failed to produce in the way of material goods it made up in human capital. Consider this partial roster of famous Mississippians that have shaped the cultural landscape: Jimmie Rodgers, the "Father of Country Music;" blues legends Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf and Robert Johnson; the King himself, Elvis Presley; America's greatest novelist, William Faulkner; playwriting titan Tennessee Williams; record-breaking gridiron stars Jerry Rice, Walter Payton, and Brett Favre; and Oprah Winfrey.

For centuries travelers knew Mississippi lands from the Natchez Trace, a footpath connecting Native American villages to the Mississippi River. In early America watermen would float flat-boats down the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, sell their goods and salvageable logs on the Natchez docks and then walk back through the nation's interior on the Trace. Today the Natchez Trace Parkway is an unimpeded 444-mile national park, with over 300 of its miles through Mississippi. It is the ideal conduit for scouting the state's rural land.
