There was a time when traffic across the Panhandle traversed Highway 90. Like a lot of small-town America, time just seemed to stand still when the Interstate opened. A stroll downtown reveals examples of architecture from the 19th Century through to the classic 1950's. The adjacent neighborhood has many antebellum and Victorian homes some of which have been lovingly restored.
