Without any industry to employ the residents of the Delta in Mississippi, the future of Drew, like so many other towns, remains unclear. But on a hopeful note: "You can take the boy out of Drew but you can't take Drew out of the boy." -- @staffordshurden.

Drew was once a thriving town in the Mississippi Delta that is now endangered due to a shifting agricultural industry.

Water hazard: When wandering around old house sites, watch out for abandoned underground cisterns that may have been left uncovered. I recently encountered these water tanks at two old houses; this one was fairly obvious but the other was basically a hole in the middle of a side yard. Lined with brick, they might not be so easy to climb out of if a person fell in. Stay safe out there.
