Things are looking up downtown
By JASON PATTERSON and
Downtown Yazoo City has a history unlike any other town, but like main streets across America changing times have taken a toll on the former bustling business district.
Today the business owners who remain on Main Street are working hard to overcome the challenges of the present and working to create a better future.
Visitors from around the country stop by Main Street when they’re passing through Yazoo. Guest registers in local shops include names from places as far away as Puerto Rico and Sweden, and yet some local business owners say that sometimes the greatest challenge is getting the folks who live right here in Yazoo County to come see what they have to offer.
Downtown Yazoo has experienced many changes over the years, and it continues to evolve today.
