  • Capital/River

    Visits to this region offer a glimpse of Old South grandeur, while Civil War re-enactments recall the heartache of a nation torn apart. This region is also known as the Black Prairie because of the rich, dark soil.

    Location - The Capital/River Region encompasses the southwest corner of Mississippi. It stretches from Jackson, Mississippi's capital city and geographic center, to the historic towns that line the bluffs of the Mississippi River.

    Attractions – The state capital Jackson is home to historical, art and natural science museums, shopping and excellent restaurants. In the River Region to the west, time seems measured not by clock or calendar, but by the rise and fall of the Mississippi River. This section of the state features at least one historic bed and breakfast inn, Civil War battle site or monument in every 10-mile stretch. Spring and fall pilgrimages offer a glimpse of Old South grandeur, while Civil War re-enactments recall the heartache of a nation torn apart. History-rich cities here include Natchez, home to the nation's largest collection of antebellum mansions; Port Gibson, the town General Grant deemed "too beautiful to burn;" Vicksburg, where days of siege and battle are replayed endlessly on the rolling hills of the Vicksburg National Military Park; and Woodville, the boyhood home of Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederacy. The Homochitto National Forest, Natchez Trace Parkway, Natchez Trace National Scenic Trail, Natchez National Historic Park, Vicksburg National Military Trail, three National Wildlife Refuges, and numerous State Parks and Water Parks provide outdoor recreation opportunities in this region.

    Recreation - The many rivers and streams found in this region can be counted on for excellent fishing. The area is known for its trophy whitetail deer, flocks of turkey and coveys of wild quail. Other activities available in this region include boating, water skiing, camping, picnicking, hiking and viewing historic sites.

    Climate - Mississippi lies mainly in the subtropics. The climate is mild with the coldest months experiencing low temperatures near 40 degrees F. Summer temperatures frequently reach 100 degrees F, with coastal breezes providing cooling relief. Humidity is highest in August and September reaching an average close to 90%. The highest rainfall comes during the spring months, but December and January are wet, too.

  • Hills Region

    This region offers a history, centers of southern culture, and the Appalachian foothills, unique in Mississippi landscapes.  

    Location - In the northeastern corner of Mississippi, the Hills Region has the highest elevation in the state with  the northeastern hills stretching from the edge of the Mississippi River Delta to the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.

    Attractions - The area is brimming with water. The Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway connects the Tennessee River to the Gulf of Mexico via the Tombigbee River, along the eastern border of the region. And the state’s three “great lakes,” are in the region’s western reaches along Interstate 55 with state parks nearby.  Most of the more than 500 Civil War battles waged on Mississippi soil were fought in this area. Today history buffs from north and south travel to Corinth to walk carefully preserved battlefields, and then tour the gracious antebellum mansions of nearby Holly Springs. Home to the University of Mississippi and to one of the South's most-strolled town squares, Oxford is widely regarded as a center for southern culture.  One of the world's most enduring cultural icons, Elvis Presley, was born in Tupelo. The two-room, shotgun-style house where the King of Rock 'n Roll grew up attracts adoring fans from virtually every country. Tupelo is also the site of the headquarters of the famed Natchez Trace Parkway, a scenic route that winds through lush forests, beside sparkling streams and into the heart of America's frontier past.  Farther east, the Appalachian foothills create a rugged terrain of rocky outcroppings, thick woodlands and bubbling streams found nowhere else in Mississippi. In this tranquil setting, Mother Nature is the main attraction. This Region’s proximity to the Midwest and its many top shelf golf courses make this region an attractive golfing destination. The Hills Region is also home to the Holly Springs National Forest and eight State Parks.  

    Recreation - Four large reservoirs in this region offer great all-around fishing. River anglers will find the Coldwater and Tallahatchie to be prime sites. Other popular recreation in the area includes boating, water skiing, camping, picnicking, hiking and viewing historic sites.

    Climate - Mississippi lies mainly in the subtropics. The climate is mild with the coldest months experiencing low temperatures near 40 degrees F. Summer temperatures frequently reach 100 degrees F, with coastal breezes providing cooling relief. Humidity is highest in August and September reaching an average close to 90%. The highest rainfall comes during the spring months, but December and January are wet, too. Expect temperatures in the northeastern hills region to be somewhat cooler than the rest of the state.

  • Mississippi Delta

    Before the casinos sprang up out of the cotton fields, the Delta was famous as the birthplace of the blues. Today visitors can take in a performance at a real Delta blues juke joint. And cities like Greenwood and Greenville are known for hosting lively festivals celebrating the area's rich musical and cultural heritage.

    Location - The Delta Region covers the northwest and west-central portions of Mississippi, bordering the Mississippi River on its western edge. It includes cities such as Greenville, Tunica and Clarksdale.

    Attractions - The Mississippi River, its tributary system and countless oxbow lakes dot this region and provide numerous outdoor recreation possibilities. The Delta National Forest is also located here. Florewood River Plantation State Park, also located in this region, is a reproduction of a 1850's cotton plantation. Other outdoor attractions in the region include Great River Road State Park, Holmes Country State Park, Leroy Percy State Park and Winterville Mounds State Park. Mississippi’s Delta Region is a combination of quaint towns, wide open fields of cotton and the top casino destination between Las Vegas and Atlantic City. With nine casinos, over 6,300 hotel rooms, more than 40 restaurants, and three signature golf courses, Tunica, just 30 minutes south of Memphis, has become one of the nation’s hottest golf destinations.

    Recreation - The Delta's lakes and streams are ideal for anglers looking for trophy bass or a boatload of bream. Many of the oxbow lakes such as Tunica Cut-Off, Lake Wittington, Lake Ferguson and Eagle Lake are famous for the consistent quantity of bass, crappie, bluegill and catfish. Other activities available in this region include boating, water skiing, camping, picnicking, hiking and viewing historic sites.

    Climate - Mississippi lies mainly in the subtropics. The climate is mild with the coldest months experiencing low temperatures near 40 degrees F. Summer temperatures frequently reach 100 degrees F, with coastal breezes providing cooling relief. Humidity is highest in August and September reaching an average close to 90%. The highest rainfall comes during the spring months, but December and January are wet, too.

    This Colonial Revival home was begun in 1918 and completed in 1920 by Captain J.W. Henderson, who served as a Captain in the Spanish-American War. He was a lawyer in Tunica and also served in the state legislature. He had served as Superintendent of Schools and pushed for the building of the High School in 1914. He was married and had one adopted daughter. When the depression came along, he lost the house about 1930 and it was taken over by Planter's Bank. Sometime during this time, his wife died. Planters Bank took the home and made it into at least four apartments which were occupied by employees of the bank.

    Cartney-Hunt House
    408 Seventh St. South Columbus, MS. 39701
    Innkeeper(s):Marleen Hansen
    Local: (662)244-7232

    Welcome to the Cartney-Hunt House. This Federal-style house was built in 1828 only seven years after Columbus was incorporated in 1821. The builder of the house, Mr. James M. Cartney, acquired the tract of land that the house is located on April 10, 1824. Mr. Cartney conveyed the property to Henry W. Hunt sometime before June 20, 1836. Let's think back to the time when the house was built. Columbus was not much more than a village and most of the houses in town were log cabins. Columbus was easily accessible by steamboat via the Tombigbee River and by the U. S. Government's Military Road that stretched from Nashville to New Orleans through Columbus. The population did not increase rapidly.
