Cairo, once a thriving river town of over 15,000 people feels like a ghost town with less than 3000 people and many abandoned buildings and dilapidated structures. Many wonderful historic buildings have been lost to time.
We did find a few old mansions holding on to a different era. The street, Washington Avenue, where these homes are located, was once called Millionaires Row.
