Tate County Heritage Museum / by Will Jacks



The Tate County Heritage Museum tells various aspects of the county's history, including the story of how the town of Coldwater had to be moved - churches, houses, and water tank - to make way for the creation of Arkabutla Lake. The museum is located in the Tate County Courthouse, a Mississippi Historic Landmark listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The courthouse is constructed of locally produced brick and is the oldest continuously used courthouse in the state of Mississippi, circa 1875.
