Looks like we've been to Enfields in a few places, but not the one in Connecticut, so let's go Unionville -> Enfield (CT).  Taken crossing into Connecticut on US 5, September 12, 2009.

Indianola, Unknown

Since there's the words "Corp. Limit" along with reddish pavement and rounded red gravel, it has to be Mississippi. I've been to Indianola, Iowa and there's no divided highway there.

That is correct! And on a side note, its main claim to fame is being the childhood home of blues legend B.B. King.
