This summer, we visited Margaret’s Grocery again, on a trip to Vicksburg. Of course, sweet Margaret is gone, and Preacher, Rev. Dennis, is in a nursing home. Their church is supposed to be keeping the place up, but it’s looking terribly faded.
If you’re ‘new’ to Margaret’s Grocery, it was a store that Margaret had, and when she married Rev. Dennis, he told her that he would build her a castle. And he did.
Back in March, Gov. Barbour declared one week the “Reverend Herman D. Dennis and Margaret’s Grocery Awareness and Preservation Week”.
