The DeSoto County Museum features the history and development of DeSoto County, Mississippi, from 1541 to the present. Artifacts and displays begin with the arrival of  Hernando DeSoto and his contact with the native inhabitants of Mississippi.  Displays continue through the riverboat days with a working model of a paddlewheel boat.  Other exhibits feature the parlor of an antebellum mansion and artifacts from the Civil War.  Key events in the agricultural, recreational, and social  development of DeSoto County are also on display.
