Long Description:
The Dixiana Motel is directly across from Louisiana Circle, part of the Vicksburg National Military Park.

Not only can you see Louisiana from Louisiana Circle, during the siege of Vicksburg the heavy Confederate cannon stationed here created a difficult problem for Union Navy on the Mississippi River.

The Dixiana looks neat and clean from the outside but a few of the residents look like they have seen MUCH netter days. Blasterz suspect the Dixiana is more multi-family residential, with a sprinking of hot-sheet for entertainment.
