Siding is three and one half miles southeast of Iuka, on State
Highway 72. This, at one time, was an important loading station
for gravel, as much as 8,000 cars being shipped annually. This
business has been moved to Tippie, directly across the highway.
A short distance away is a gravel mountain, containing the best
material in the world for road construction according to T.H.
McDonald of the Federal Highway Commission.
Tripple lies on the crest of a gravel mountain, one of the
largest sources of gravel in the country. Southern Railroad
operates a spur.
