My name is Phillip Knecht, and I am a 30-something year old attorney, historian, photographer and preservationist. Along with my wife Amanda and our six dogs, I live in beautiful Holly Springs, in the heart of the Hill Country, in our nearly 120-year-old home, called Coopwood.
The primary purpose of this blog is to explore the history, architecture and culture of North Mississippi’s Hill Country, with history, photographs and maps of historic homes, churches, town squares battlefields and other historically important locations in the Hill Country. For a general overview of the history of the Hill Country, visit this page here.
All photographs, unless otherwise marked, were taken by me. The majority of the pictures were taken in high definition HDR.
