We saw materials from the slave era in Mississippi. I will try to post a photo of a flyer offering land and slaves as a package sale. The slaves were the more valuable part of the deal. It was distressing but a part of our...More

Very well done museum - gives you an excellent history of and feel for the area. It's a great example of antebellum style architecture dating from 1858 and is virtually unchanged.

The wide variety of artifacts and exhibits ensures that there is something for everyone. The sights, sounds and smells of the Old Courthouse adds to the experience, you really feel like you are a part of the history you are learning about.

The old courtroom upstairs is a delight to see. As another reviewer said, one can well imagine J. Davis striding into the room to plead his case. Like the courtroom, the exhibits downstairs seem to be from another era. While there has been some attempt...More

Please go by and see the wonderful artifacts from a long ago era. The museum is chock full of history and the docents are very knowledgeable about the court house and the 47 day siege of the city.
