Design Milk, a popular blog dedicated to interior design, architecture, and modern decor, recently featured the Splinter Creek Model Home in an article titled "Splinter Creek: A Modern Model Home in a Mississippi Community Focused on Sustainability."
The article highlights the dogtrot design of the Model House, saying the timber-framed home was inspired by agrarian structures often found in the area.

In other news, Oxford was recently highlighted in Southern Living as the "The South's Best Food Town." Hannah Hayes writes, "From William Faulkner and Barry Hannah to Fat Possum Records, from family silver on plastic tailgate tables at The Grove to the University of Mississippi’s Southern Studies program, the people and culture of Oxford have made this college town far from square, despite the shape of its historic downtown center."
