689 Rutherford Rd, Tupelo, Mississippi 38801, United States

This museum boasts an eclectic representation of our region’s history. The main facility houses permanent exhibits, from fossils found in the region, early European settlement of Northeast Mississippi, the statehood of Mississippi, to Civil War years. In addition, the museum has a working model railroad depicting Tupelo, circa 1940.  Its outside village is a life-size collection of regional history: an original 1870 Dogtrot cabin, a one-room chapel and one-room school dated from the late 1800’s, a functioning blacksmith shop, a Memphis streetcar turned into “Dudie’s Diner, two 1940 era fire trucks, and a Frisco caboose.
