Margaret's Grocery

Never, ever pass up a chance to shoot photographs of Margaret's Grocery on Washington Street in Vicksburg, Mississippi. The castle that the Rev. H.D. Dennis built his wife is unique in American folk art. Want to see it in person? Give me a call and I will personally take you. And if we are lucky, the reverend and his wife will be available to talk. It will be an experience you will never forget...and one I cannot get enough of. What are you waiting for?


  1. I want to go. I'm eternally fascinated by the colors and the hodge-podge.

    And the no-accounting-for lettering which runs off one sign and onto another---I love their faith and their perseverance.

    And I always wonder---did they take out the garbage to put in the pews?

  2. I love this place. I drive by it once a month (again...NO CAMERA on me!). These are great really captures it perfectly.
