New Year New Vintage
The name of my shop came from our family's favorite place on the Natchez Trace. There we escaped the day to day stresses, unknown futures, the things that had changed and the things that remained the same. We go back to touch base with what is now and what once was in our lives.
Rocky Springs Methodist Church. Site Marker: This church was built in 1837 by the Methodist congregation of Rocky Springs. Earlier the town had been a station for a circuit-riding preacher who stopped by only once or twice a month. The Church is preserved by the former congregation members who hold regular services here and gather here at an annual "homecoming" each spring. This church is on top of the hill near Rocky Springs Campground where we spent many hours after living in Jackson, MS and Ames, IA.
