Saving Margaret’s Grocery

Margaret's Grocery 2005, Vicksburg MS

Thanks to my friend Larry for telling me about this – according to the AP, Margaret’s Grocery in Vicksburg (which the story called the “Bible Castle”) is:

…being taken over by a local church that hopes to preserve it.

The couple sold the home to Cool Springs M.B. Church, on condition that they be allowed to live there as long as they were able.

Since Miss Margaret passed away last month and the Reverend is in a nursing home, the church will be kept going – not sure how, but should be interesting. Can’t wait to see what they’re up to on our next visit!
