Stopped by the Trace Information Center at Kosciusko to get info about the Trace and Oprah Winfrey's homeplace. They didn't have info on it but gave us directions. Have watched Oprah throughout her rise in fame...so a visit to her roots was interesting. There is only a sign at the location of her parents former house with just a bit...
I spent about a year in Kosciusko and, frankly, my skin still crawls every time I hear, speak or type the name. Oprah hasn't "invested" money in this place because it isn't worthy. She didn't have good experiences here and neither will you. Skip it if you can.
Nothing to see but a old house.
It is a shame that a multi millionaire has done mother for her home town.
No money spent to improve education, books for library, health care equipment or wing oh hospital or civic services in Attala County or Kosusko Mississippi.
Thanks for nothing Oprah.
