River Road in Lawrence County Mississippi has been nominated for preservation with the Mississippi Department of Archives and History. The nominating committee’s hope is to add River Road along side White Sand Creek Bridge to Mississippi’s list of historic places. White Sand Creek Bridge was placed on the listing by a group of concerned citizens, the Lawrence County Historical Society and MDAH in 1989. With a Mississippi Department of Archives and History Landmark designation we hope to preserve and protect the historic and scenic nature of the landscape, road and bridge, so generations to come can experience what the pioneer traveler experienced in the deep south of Mississippi in the yesteryears.
