Vicksburg is in the spotlight of the first new episode of “Mississippi Roads” in two years, which premiered Thursday night on Mississippi Public Broadcasting.

MPB debuted the show, which featured the Old Court House Museum, the Tomato Place, Beulah Cemetery, homes featured on the annual Tapestry tour and Clinton artist Wyatt Waters at Cedar Grove shortly before it aired on television.

The statewide television coverage should provide a boost to local tourism, said Vicksburg Visitors and Convention Bureau Executive Director Bill Seratt.

“We are so pleased with what MPB has produced about Vicksburg, and it will really pay off in the future, especially for Tapestry,” Seratt said.
