My name is Phillip Knecht, and this is my blog. I am a 30-something year old self-employed attorney living in beautiful Holly Springs, Mississippi. Along with my wife Amanda and our six dogs, I live in the East Holly Springs Historic District, in Coopwood, a 113-year-old Victorian home. I consider myself to be an amateur historian, photographer and historic preservationist.
The primary purpose of this blog is to keep a photographic record of the various historic sites, houses, battlefields and other locations in North Mississippi’s Hill Country, including many of the locations I have visited on my travels. In addition, I try to include written and oral records of these historic sites and the people who owned and lived in them.
All photographs, unless otherwise marked, were taken by me. The majority of the pictures were taken in high definition HDR.
