Highpoint rank by height: 47th. This site wins our award as most unkempt (as of late 1998). We hope someone will decide to clean it up and make it a source of pride for Mississippi. As of autumn 1998, this high point was marked by a USGS marker and a beat-up old frame of a sign (the sign itself was nowhere to be seen). Someone had scrawled a notation that this is the highest point in Mississippi on the frame of the sign. Other things were also scrawled there, but we won't get into that. Sadly, the rest of the site consists of metal towers, utility buildings, chain-link fences and an assortment of broken bottles and cans. It's not a pretty "site." Reports in 2001 indicate that the condition of the area has actually deteriorated!
