A town in Mississippi whose major claim to fame is being the Birthplace of Elvis. Not a good place for your transmission in your car to die. Other facts gleaned from the phone book while waiting for the rental car people to rescue me:
It was the first city in the Deep South to be named an All-American city.
The first strip of concrete road was laid down near the town.
Elvis was born in a two-room house very close to the center of town.
