Abstract : During the spring and summer of 1994, National Register documentation of the railroad section houses on the Mahannah Farms tract at Floweree in Warren County, Mississippi was conducted by Florida Archeological Services, Inc. of Jacksonville, Florida. Prior assessment of the structures was completed in 1993 during a cultural resources assessment survey of portions of the Tennessee-Tombigbee waterway wildlife mitigation project. During the completion of the current study, the Mahannah Farms section houses were subjected to Section 106 mitigation via architectural and historical documentation. During the documentation project, the Mahannah Farms section houses were subjected to Level 1 HABS/HAER documentation which included the completion of both measured drawings as well as photographic documentation using large format photography. The completion of this study has contributed to the history of life on a railroad section crew in the Mississippi/Yazoo Delta during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. (AN)
