After landing the role of Minny in the film, Octavia Spencer spent six hot summer months in Mississippi filming. Jacksonians and Mississippians in particular seem to have a personal connection with the movie, actors, etc., since the story has a close tie to many of their lives.
The Fairview Inn was so inspired by the novel, "The Help," that a themed package was created. This package includes overnight accommodations at the Fairview (mentioned in the novel), a special welcome basket filled with Mississippi themed items, a self driving tour of locations mentioned in the novel, mint juleps, and a Southern dinner for two. See more on the package, here.
