Hernando history:

Located just 10 miles across the line from Memphis, Tennessee is the county courthouse which stands on the site of Mississippi's oldest county seat, originally built in 1866. Inside, history unfolds in a series of breath-taking murals. Seven life-size paintings depict the exploits of the city's namesake, Hernando DeSoto, the great Spanish conquistador who first explored the area in 1541. To feel the echoes of another important time in our nation's history, viist the Civil War Cemetery located just south of town. "Hidden Brezzes" - for sailors in search of a steady breeze, nearby Arkabutla Lake is ranked the second windiest body of water between Chicago and New Orleans.
