87-year-old woman who lives in a shack gets a new home (989 hits)

Last month we covered a story of an 87-year-old woman living in a one-room shack in rural Scott County south of Lena.

Thanks to that story over $35,000 has been raised to build her a new house. Framing on that house started Friday morning and a lot of progress was made. The story went nationwide on NBC and on the Internet about the deplorable conditions Ester Davis was living in, just outside of Lena, Mississippi.
