Experience small town Mississippi come to life during this annual Harvest Fest. Enjoy live music, train and wagon rides and visit barnyard animals. Sample complimentary homemade food, shop at the general store and observe blacksmithing and demos at the print shop, saw mill and cane mill.
To the casual visitor, this may seem like a peculiar attraction, but not when one considers the role that Mississippi's two most significant industries have played in the history and economy of the state. The Agriculture and Forestry Museum features over 40,000 square feet of exhibition space, displaying many artifacts, machinery and documents that pay tribute to farmers and lumbermen throughout Mississippi's history. The museum gift shop serves a limited menu of refreshments and offers a variety of unique and educational souvenirs. Admission is $4 for adults, $3 for seniors, $2 for children ages 6-18, and $.50 for children 3-5.
