Yazoo County 

 

County's character and its sites of interest are as diverse as its landscape. Its geography ranges from flat Delta fields that seem to reach endlessly to the horizon to gently rolling hills bordered by cliffs and canyons cut in loess bluffs, deposited by the wind over many centuries. Those who have inhabited this mysterious land have each made their mark on the landscape and legend of Yazoo. Yazoo County, Mississippi, is Colorful, Authentic, and Unique...just like you!

Yazoo is home to the oldest library building in Mississippi that is still in use, the oldest juke joint in Mississippi still open daily, and has one of the largest areas to be added to the National Register of Historic Places. Yazoo City's Town Center Historic District was selected by This Old House Magazine in 2012 as one of the "best old house neighborhoods." Of course, the legend of the Witch of Yazoo has brought many visitors to Yazoo City's Glenwood Cemetery, voted in a Huffington Post 2012 poll as the 2nd "Spookiest Cemetery in the US." Tours of the cemetery led by costumed storytellers are available for groups who schedule in advance.
