Boguegaba Creek

The above scene of Boguegaba Creek was photographed from the Shumpert Road bridge in southwestern Itawamba County. Boguegaba Creek, less than two miles southwest of Boguefala Creek, follows the Boguefala Creek course through this part of the county. The creek begins in present-day Lee County just north of Mooreville flowing southeastward through the old Itawamba County town of Richmond (present-day Lee County) and through the southwestern corner of Itawamba County into Monroe County. During the 19th Century many of Itawamba County's larger cotton plantations were located along this creek.
