The displays are the actual items, not reproductions. Tells the history of the commerce in the state through farming and the lumber business.

An interesting visit to Mississippi's past. The General Store carried a lot of state products. The doctors office was interesting, a real salute to how far the medical community has come. I highly recommend this museum.

I've been visiting this place since I was a little girl and it is always neat. The grounds are well kept and the staff is friendly. It's also a good place to host events.

This place is a nice walk back in time and a great way to learn about some Mississippi history! Be sure to check out the vast arrowhead collection during the tour of the grounds. Great place for a student field trip!
