Holcomb, Mississippi's Abandoned Main Street


Holcomb, Mississippi is a little unincorporated town in western Grenada County, Mississippi at the junction of two railroads and three highways. It is a rather sprawling town of streets, and with its strategic location, it seems rather strange that the town never incorporated formally as a city, and even stranger that it apparently never really grew into what it could have been. Today its old Main Street along the railroad right of way is largely abandoned.
