Two major railroads, the Memphis and Charleston Railroad, running east and west, and the Mobile and Ohio Railroad, running north and south, crossed in downtown Corinth, Mississippi. Me and my wife wanted to see the famous railroad intersection “crossroad” that so many soldiers fought for control of during the Battle of Shiloh. It is really not much to see, but... More

This small jewel is run by a dedicated group who strive to perverse the history of Corinth and the surrounding areas for future generations. Don't miss the first Saturday of most months..Crossroads host Green market where you can find wonderful handmade and hand crafted... More

The Crossroads Museum is a the historic Corinth train depot. After you visit the Corinth Interpretive Center you should visit the depot to get a better understanding of how the Civic War battle that took place here unfolded. The strategic railroad crossroad was a focal point of the civil war battles at Corinth and Shiloh and there is still heavy... More

Was taking by grandkids to see some historical sights and found this. Local museum with great historical significant. The North South Railroad intersection this train station sits on is the actual crossroad that the Battle of Shiloh was all about. Cost very little to get in and had a lot of local and civil war history. Well worth a visit.... More

This museum was very small. Walked through on your own. interesting what they did have. one room was empty and appeared to need some work on the rooms themselves. They do have a small gift shop. one lady at the register was courteous.

Really enjoyed this little museum packed with Civil War history emphasizing the huge importance of the railroad crossroad, which is just outside! There's also some local depot/railroad memorabilia and the very interesting Coca-Cola Museum!

Even if you are not a native of Corinth you will enjoy the museum. Most local historical societies cater to just local citizens but Crossroads does a good job with a broader regional historical view. More seems to be happening on Saturdays but even during the weekdays you'll find interesting things to do.
