The legacy of recently emancipated African Americans stands proudly today in tribute to their determination to build their own church. Their frame Methodist Episcopal Church built in 1867 near the Oxford Square was replaced in 1910 with a twin-steepled brick church. Following the building’s restoration in 2013, the Mississippi Landmark now serves the community as a history museum and an events center. Professionally designed exhibits review African American life from Enslavement through Civil Rights. A video and accompanying panels tell the Burns Church story. Local African Americans are featured throughout the museum. It’s an easy walk to the Burns-Belfry Museum from the historic Oxford Square.

Like many sites concerned with Southern history, the museum devotes the first few exhibitions of its tour to artifacts from the Civil War era. As guests proceed to the upper floors, however, the true quirkiness of the place begins to come into focus. In one room, they find a collection of taxidermy animals indigenous to Mississippi; in the next, flapper girl clothing from the 1920s. Over here a large collection of Victorian children’s books shares floor space with an antique Victrola; while over there items made by the Native American tribes of Mississippi sit next to the first private bathtub ever owned in Holly Springs. From wall to wall, there is truly a little bit of everything: quilts, dresses, Elvis records, old advertisements, antique books and bottles, dollhouses, sports memorabilia, promotional materials from past presidential campaigns.
