Along the Pearl River, there were many small houses, many of which were only lived in part-time for fishing. Behind many of these houses, there were lots of really big houses.

The swamp is part of nature's natural beauty. Honey Island Swamp is unique because it's one of the least-altered river swamps in the country. It's pretty much in its original condition, almost a pristine wilderness.
