Grand Gulf

Back in Claiborne County, Windsor isn't the only "ghostly" locale. The town of Grand Gulf -- once one of the busiest ports on the river, but long since abandoned after the river changed course -- is now no more than a state park. Buildings from Grand Gulf and the other nearby ghost town of Rodney have been relocated here, a testament to the power of the Mississippi, who both gives and takes away prosperity.

If you choose to visit, bring cash. The museum won't accept debit cards unless you are camping in the park.
