Dixie and Dori Jennings moved to Starkville in 1978 when Dave
joined the founding faculty members at the College of Veterinary
Medicine at MSU. It wasn't until 1992 when Dori and her husband
moved into Conway Acres while attending Auburn University
that they realized there was no safe and affordable housing
alternative to apartments and
condos in Starkville. Where would their daughter live
if she were attending MSU? Dave and Dixie set out to develop
an affordable manufactured housing community that would provide
a safe, independent living style in pleasant, natural surroundings
that their daughter would enjoy. JennLake Meadows opened
in August 1995.
JennLake Meadows encompasses 110 acres located on the north
side of Highway 182 east on the way to the MSU Golf Course. Traveling
west on the 4-lane, you are only one-half mile from the new by-pass
and two miles from the new main entrance to the MSU campus and
Research Park; going east offers easy access to Columbus, West
Point, and the Golden Triangle Airport. As you enter the property,

stocked fishing lakes, or our resident ducks and geese.
community atmosphere is one of family and friendly neighbors. Student
residents are comprised mostly of professional and/or graduate students;
young professionals and retirees also call it home. More than one
resident has graduated and/or moved elsewhere, returned to Starkville,
and moved back to JennLake Meadows. What better endorsement can

any preconceived notions or connotations about "trailer parks" and/or
"trailer trash," and about manufactured homes as a housing option.

Meadows remains a pleasant, well-maintained development. Yards must

and are owned and lived-in by the residents.
