Just North of Vicksburg, Mississippi off U.S. 61 (also known as the blues highway) lies a small homemade castle. The castle, which started as a grocery store, belonged to the Reverend Herman “Preacher” Dennis and his wife Margaret Dennis. Margaret had owned the store for than 40 years before she married Preacher Dennis in 1984. Preacher Dennis told his wife that he would build a monument in her honor to show their faith in God so he turned the store into a castle. People travel from around the country to see the Dennis creation.
