Possum Ridge Train Exhibit at Two Mississippi Museums
Two Mississippi Museums (9222 North St.) in Jackson is hosting the Possum Ridge Train Exhibit through Friday, Dec. 31. The 40-year-old exhibit, which depicts a typical Mississippi railroad town during the 1940s, originally went on display inside the Mississippi Department of Archives and History's William F. Winter Archives and History Building.
When first constructed, the exhibit consisted of a single block of an electrified Main Street with 10 buildings including a bank, dry goods store, newspaper office and restaurant. Since then, the model town has grown to include a depot, church, bakery, barbershop, icehouse, sawmill, cotton gin, train yard, farmsteads, an agricultural airport and more. A model of the Panama Limited train runs on a track around the perimeter of the model, with two other trains running on other tracks at the same time.
The Possum Ridge Train Exhibit is located on the second floor of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum and is free to view. The exhibit is open Tuesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The Possum Ridge exhibit will be closed on Dec. 25.
