Royal Land

Royal Land

If you follow facebook page here, then you may have seen that I posted my first Facebook Live video from Meridian on Friday. As we were travelling further down south we stopped to photograph an abandoned amusement park I had heard of there called Royal Land. Read about Royal Land in an article here. Apparently it was open in the late 60's to early 70's before being closed for good and sitting abandoned. I was a little disappointed to find that the entrance was so overgrown that you couldn't see all of it very well, so my best photo was actually from behind the entrance where you could see the columns a little better and the shadows of the trees added some creepiness to it. Abandoned places like this are fun to explore and photograph and wonder what it was like in it heyday, so I am always looking for abandoned places in Mississippi to check out. 

If you want to actually watch me take this photo, then go over to my Facebook page and check out the video I made while taking it.
