If you pass through the small town of Poplarville and drive along its Main Street, you can't help but notice the old, renovated white house with tall round columns right in the middle of downtown, next to Hancock Bank and across the street from Radio Shack. I was told that the house was built in the 1930's, shortly before Main Street became developed. Until then, it was considered a "country estate".
This aging, rusty fence surrounds the house and an entire city block. I was informed the fence was placed within a few years after the house was completed, probably dating it back to the 1930's- early 1940's.
It appears that at one time the fence was painted white, but now nearly all of the paint has peeled away and rust has overtaken it. Apparently this fence was for decorative purposes only, because it is much too short to keep predators out and most animals in. It is warped and broken in some spots and has a few pieces missing, but I think the imperfections add interest to it. I love old fences. Most have a story behind them...
