Lost Americana is about telling the stories of the people who live in rural America.
•Have you lived in the same rural area since the 1970/80s?
•Were you the last class to graduate from a rural school before it closed its doors forever?
•Do you know of a small town (under 2,000 people) that is a shell of it's former self?
•Do you just what to give us some feedback on the topics we cover?
Well, don't be shy, go to the "Connect" page and drop us a line. Also don't be afraid to reach out to me via social media.
A lone image I made while passing through Arkansas in August of 1996. One of those moments where the sunrise looked so nice I had to scramble and pull off the highway. It didn't take long to find an unused farm building.

St. Francis County saw its population decline by over 2,000 people between 2010 to 2016. While just about every one of the 30 counties in Arkansas' Mississippi River Delta Region none were as hard hit as nearby Phillips County which lost almost 13% of it's population in the same time.
