Vicksburg

I went to Vicksburg, located in Bay County, on 2/6/2017. I completed Bay County today. Yayee!

According to the ghost town website,

Vicksburg was founded by a man whose last name was Vickers and the town was called Vickersburg until it was shortened. Once the turpentine mill closed down, the town went with it. Vickburg had stores but now those are gone. The Vicksburg mill served all surrounding counties when turpentine was an important commodity during the 1800s. By Mark Pippin
