Water Valley history:
Water Valley has many historical sites. Once, in the days of the railroad and when the town was new, Water Valley was booming. Most of the old structures that used to house businesses then still stand today, many with faded sales messages still showing on their vast brick walls. Most of these merchant's quarters are but ghosts of the past. One famous restuarant that has stood the test of time is The Early Bird Cafe. The food there is the best in the area, and the menu has stayed relatively the same through the years. Nestled between Lowe's studio and what used to be the fine Water Valley Hotel, it is definitely one of the most charming nostalgic places I have ever been to. And the coffee is still as good as when the hotel patrons and railroad workers drank it all those years ago! I have always found this place to be a piece of history that refused to die. Sort of like in Faulkner's "A Rose For Emily" where the antebellum house is surrounded by the new gas stations, it truly stands for the contrast of Old south/ New south.
